Virtual: ‘Black American Relations with South Koreans and Korean Americans: Historical Origins and Present Trajectories’
February 3, 2021 at 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Join the Department of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies and Nadia Y. Kim on February 3 at 4:00 p.m. as a part of the 2020-2021 Speaker Series: Blackness in Asian and Middle Eastern Studies.
Kim is a professor of sociology at Loyola Marymount University. Her research focuses on U.S. race and citizenship inequalities regarding Korean/Asian Americans and South Koreans, race and nativist racism in Los Angeles (e.g., 1992 L.A. unrest), immigrant women’s politics of the body and emotions, 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 the 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 (Stanford, forthcoming Spring 2021), and of award-winning journal articles on race and assimilation and on racial attitudes.
