Online event

Join the REDI Task Force for the next event in the "Critical Conversations: Race and Global Affairs" series featuring a conversation about racism in Asian studies.This event will examine how race has historically been an important organizing principle in understanding Asia, with critical reflections on how racism has permeated research and teaching on Asia. The panelists will engage in a dialogue between ethnic studies and area studies to learn insights from Asian American studies in enriching Asian studies. The panelists include experts on China, Japan, Korea, and South Asia coming from various disciplines of anthropology, history, sociology, and Asian-American studies: Professors Gi-Wook Shin, Gordon Chang, Sharika Thiranagama, and Eiichiro Azuma. They will discuss various ways in which considering the question of race can enrich the study and teaching of Asia. There will be time for a Q&A. This event will be recorded and uploaded to the REDI website.
