-

The alarming rise of anti-Asian violence, especially the shooting deaths of six women of Asian descent on March 16 in Atlanta, is prompting conversations about the intersections of racism and misogyny, dispelling stereotypes about sex work, and inspiring activism and allyship in support of the AAPI community. 

In this conversation, Notre Dame professors and PhD students will examine the intersectional nature of anti-Asian violence as well, discuss the roots of systemic racism, and explore the needs of AAPI communities now and in the future.

Participants are Jennifer Huynh, Assistant Professor of American Studies; Xian Wang, Assistant Professor of East Asian Languages and Cultures; Sharon Yoon, Assistant Professor of Korean Studies; Lailatul Fitriyah, PhD student in Theology; Grace Song, PhD student in History; and Flora Tang, PhD student in Peace Studies & Theology.
