"Company Wife" and Their Discourse Dilemma in A.T.Hobart's Writings of Imperial Diaspora

ZHU Hua;College of Foreign Studies, Shanghai Ocean University;  
A. T. Hobart, like Pearl S. Buck, was well-known in the 20 th century for her writings of China. She first taught at a Hangzhou missionary school and then married a sales representative from American Standard Oil. In the following 20 years, the couple was stationed at ports from Manchuria to Southwest China. Hobart generally wrote from the perspective of American merchants and outlined a modern history of American imperial diaspora in China. Most memorable were her apparitions of the invisible "company wives", who took care of homes for those pioneering merchants and whose efforts at manifest domesticity were embraced by the imperial discourse of their husbands' "Manifest Destiny". What was glimmering through the gaps of the grand narration of the imperial commercial empire was these wives' resistance to the deprivation of their subjectivity.
