For this program, Jane H. Hong, Susie Woo, and Dorothy B. Fujita-Rony will discuss their recentlypublished books to explore various contexts of Asian American transnational migration. Drawingon research from the US, India, and the Philippines, Jane Hong’s book tracks a transpacificmovement of Asians, Asian Americans, and others who leveraged U.S. imperial projects in Asiato dismantle America's Asian exclusion regime in the context of global movements foranticolonial independence and Black freedom. Susie Woo moves this discussion to focus on howimperial intimacies recast representations of Korean women and children during the Korean Warand its aftermath, illuminating the effects of US militarization upon Koreans on both sides of thePacific. Dorothy Fujita-Rony will address the meanings of family stories and artifacts within agendered and interimperial context, demonstrating how these knowledges can producealternate cartographies of memory and belonging within the Indonesian diaspora. Valerie J.Matsumoto (Professor, History /Asian American Studies, UCLA) will provide commentary.
