As part of Chapman’s Diversity & Equity Week, The Sociology Department and Women’s Studies Program will host a lecture titled, “From Yellow Peril to Yellow Fever: Asian Americans and Radicalized Sexual Politics.”
The presentation examines the historical formation and contemporary influence of racist-gendered stereotypes against Asian American men and women. Representations of Asian-Americans take on highly gender-specific radicalized and sexualized forms. This lecture addresses how Asian Americans are not only subject to ideological violence as a group, but must negotiate different—even divisive—politics of identity and desire as men and women.
