Join us for the MLC Research Centre’s upcoming webinar which is sparked by an urgent need to address the surge in anti-Asian xenophobia in North America and around the globe. Alongside pandemic fears and economic anxieties, the panel considers the enduring roots of anti-Asian racism, manifested as prejudice, hate and violence. The panelists include three renowned writers and scholars who will deliver remarks and answer your questions:

  • John Kuo Wei Tchen, Chair, Public History & Humanities, Rutgers University and Co-Founder, Museum of Chinese in America
  • Jan Wong, award-winning Journalist and Author, St. Thomas University
  • Josephine Pui-Hing Wong, Research Chair in Urban Health, Daphne Cockwell School of Nursing, Ryerson University

This event is moderated by Professor Irene Gammel, Director of the MLC Research Centre, and MLC Postdoctoral Fellow Jason Wang. The webinar is open to the general public and free of charge.
