People in this story

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 series invites a diverse slate of scholars from different disciplines to address critical issues confronting Asian American communities from a global or transnational perspective.

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.

This event is hosted by the Northeastern University Asian Studies Program, the College of Social Sciences and the Humanities, and the Office of the Provost.

Co-sponsors include the Humanities Center.
