You are invited to join the Northeastern University Asian Studies Program for the university-wide speaker series, 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. Its aim is to empower the Northeastern University community and the public to wrestle with important questions and thereby place anti-Asian violence and bigotry within their broader contexts. This series is part of the President’s Action Plan exploring ways to create a more inclusive experience for all students and bring Asian American Studies to Northeastern.
Co-sponsors include the Humanities Center.
