Event Details

Join us in a zoom webinar by Judy Wu (Asian American Studies, UC Irvine) presenting, “Asian American Women and Social Justice:  Where Do We Stand?”

In Minor Feelings: an Asian American Reckoning, Cathy Park Hong shares, “When I hear the phrase ‘Asians are next in line to be white,’ I replace the word ‘white’ with ‘disappear’. Asians are next in line to disappear”. This talk explores the political identity of Asian American women who refuse to disappear, who refuse to be dissolved into whiteness.  It explores how Asian American feminisms stage critiques of racialized and gendered structures of U.S. militarized empire by choosing alliances with women of color feminisms.
