For my research project, I will focus on Chinese immigration in 19th century by comparing two cartoonists and mention economic & cultural influences of Chinese immigration. One interesting digital archive I found for my proposal is “Protecting White Labor” by cartoonist Thomas Nast on Harper’s Weekly. In this cartoon, the speaker is dressed as a butcher who are not threatened by labor competition. Blaine appears indignant at the butcher’s overtures. Under his feet are torn pieces of the Burlingame Treaty, which enacted to protect Chinese immigrants in US. The interesting thing is that no Chinese individuals are depicted in the cartoon. Also, this cartoon acts as a bridge for me to illustrate Chinese Exclusion Act in 1882 and anti-chinese labor happened in San Francisco in order to make clear about causes behind the cartoon. Indeed, from Thomas Nast’s cartoon, it is obvious that the image is a severe indictment against Blaine. Nast makes his standpoint clearly that it’s necessary to show victimization of the Chinese, which helps me to do comparison with another cartoonist.
