This webinar was 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, with three international experts:
John Kuo Wei Tchen, Chair, Public History & Humanities, Rutgers University
Jan Wong, Journalist and Author, St. Thomas University
Josephine Pui-Hing Wong, Research Chair in Public Health, Daphne Cockwell School of Nursing, Ryerson University
Moderated by Irene Gammel and Jason Wang.
