Scholar To Discuss Asian American Plight In US

 CORVALLIS, OR – University of Washington scholar Moon-Ho Jung will speak on “Seditious Subjects: Race, State Violence, and the U.S. Empire,” on Monday, April 11, at Oregon State University. His free public lecture begins at 4 p.m. in the Memorial Union Journey Room.

It is the final lecture in OSU’s 2010-11 American Culture & Politics lecture series, sponsored by the Horning Endowment in the Humanities.

This lecture will critique narratives of U.S. history that treat Asian Americans as “immigrants” striving for inclusion in the national policy. By exploring how Asians became what he calls “racialized subjects” of the American empire before World War II, Jung will seek to reframe notions of immigration movements across the Pacific.

Jung is associate professor and the Walker Endowed Family Professor of History at the University of Washington. He is the author of “Coolies and Cane: Race, Labor, and Sugar in the Age of Emancipation” (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2006), which received the Merle Curti Award from the Organization of American Historians and the History Book Award from the Association for Asian American Studies.
