You are invited to join the Northeastern University Asian Studies Program for the last speaker in this series, Dr. Moon-ho Jung, who will be giving the talk "Menace to Empire: Anticolonial Solidarities and the Transpacific Origins of the US Security State" Moon-ho Jung is Dio Richardson Professor of History at the University of Washington, where he teaches courses on race, politics, and Asian American history. He is the author of Menace to Empire: Anticolonial Solidarities and the Transpacific Origins of the US Security State (forthcoming from the University of California Press in February 2022) and Coolies and Cane: Race, Labor, and Sugar in the Age of Emancipation (2006).
This new, university-wide series is called Asia, America and the World. The recent upsurge in anti-Asian violence and bigotry in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic has attracted renewed attention on a long-standing problem. This inaugural series invites a diverse slate of scholars from different disciplines—history, sociology, political science, and anthropology—to address critical issues confronting Asian American communities from a global or transnational perspective. The series is part of Northeastern University President Joseph Aoun’s Action Plan exploring ways to bring Asian American Studies to Northeastern.
