Social Capital Analysis of Diasporic“Piggy Flowers”in the 19~(th) Century America

ZHU Hua;College of Foreign Studies,Shanghai Ocean University;  
Men taken and sold abroad as coolies were called"Piggies"in Cantonese during the coolie trade of late Qing Dynasty. Accordingly,women taken and sold abroad to serve Piggies were called"Piggy flowers. "These"flowers"were put at a lower social and economic status than the Piggies and suffered under the oppression of both Chinese patriarchy and American racism. Due to the lack of formal records and documents,"piggy flowers"as a community were neglected for long,though they witnessed the development of global capitalism as sufferers. The present study expnds upon the established work by Kani Hiroaki and American scholars and applies the theory of Diaspora and social capital analysis in historically mapping the community based on an examination of three cases of piggy flowers: Ah Choy,Fusang and Polly Bemis.
