WEBINAR: "US Empire and Anti-Blackness: Where Korea and Korean America Have Been and Where We’re Headed"
July 29, 2020 | 11:00 a.m. (CDT)
The Center for Asian/Asian American Ministry at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary is hosting a webinar on "US Empire and Anti-Blackness: Where Korea and Korean America Have Been and Where We’re Headed" with Dr. Nadia Kim on July 29th at 11:00 a.m. (CDT).
Nadia Y. Kim is Professor of Sociology at Loyola Marymount University. Her research focuses on US race and citizenship inequalities regarding Korean/Asian Americans and South Koreans, race and nativist racism in Los Angeles (e.g., 1992 LA Unrest), immigrant women’s politics of the body and emotions in fights against environmental racism and classism, and comparative racialization of Latinxs, Asian Americans, and Black Americans. Throughout her work, Kim’s approach centers (neo)imperialism, transnationality, and the intersectionality of race, gender, class, and citizenship. Kim is author of the multi-award-winning Imperial Citizens: Koreans and Race from Seoul to LA (Stanford, 2008); of Refusing Death: Immigrant Women Fight for Environmental Justice in LA, which chronicles the embodied, emotive, and citizenship politics of Asian and Latin@ immigrant women’s fight for cleaner air in LA (Stanford, forthcoming Spring 2021), and of award-winning journal articles on race and assimilation and on racial attitudes.
The webinar is free to attend but registration is required. Registrants will receive the link to join the webinars a few days before the event.
