Dr Bill Mihalopoulos, Chief Editor of Japan Forum and lecturer for Asia Pacific Studies at UCLan spoke with Professor Jennifer Ho from the University of Colorado, Boulder and President of the Association of Asian American Studies about “Anti-Asian Racism, Black Lives Matter, and Covid 19”.
In the podcast Professor Ho talks about the origins of Asian American Studies and her professional and personal reflections on the rise of anti-Asian racism with the advent of COVID-19. Professor Ho also discusses the intersections between anti-Asian and anti-Black racism, providing historical context for how both are in service to white supremacy and how understanding these shared roots can create a common cause for antiracism work for all.
Her essay on this topic has been published online by Japan Forum.
