About this Event
Thursday, October 29, 2020 | 5:00PM - 6:30PM (PDT) | Zoom Webinar
The Race/Solidarity: Transpacific Conversations series invites faculty and guest speakers to discuss the current racial reckoning at USC and beyond and start this conversation within a global context. This series will provide a platform for faculty and students to engage with a host of social and cultural issues related to race and racism on both sides of the Pacific. Our aim is to help broaden and deepen the current discussion on race with global and historical perspectives, drawing in particular on the expertise and connections of our affiliated faculty and graduate students who have worked on these topics within diverse East Asian contexts and among Asian diasporic communities.
In this webinar session, USC Professor Adrian De Leon invites Dolly Li and Joey Yang, multimedia journalists and co-producers of Plum Radio. Plum Radio is a weekly show where they interview people of the Asian diaspora about news, pop culture, politics, and community organizing. Join Li and Yang for a conversation framed around anti-Asian racism and contemporary social justice across the Pacific. This conversation will tie in with Prof. De Leon's AMST 220: The Making of Asian America course.
