Black American Relations with South Koreans: Historical Origins and Present Trajectories
Presentation on February 3, 4 PM by Professor Nadia Kim (Loyola Marymount University), moderated by Morgan Wilson (Ph.D. candidate, UNC Department of History).
Nadia Y. Kim, professor of sociology at Loyola Marymount University, focuses on US race and citizenship inequalities regarding Korean/Asian Americans and South Koreans, race and nativist racism in Los Angeles (e.g., 1992 LA Unrest), immigrant women’s politics of the body and emotions, environmental racism and classism, and comparative racialization of Latinxs, Asian Americans, and Black Americans. Throughout her work, Kim’s approach centers (neo)imperialism, transnationality, and the intersectionality of race, gender, class, and citizenship. Kim is author of the multi-award-winning Imperial Citizens: Koreans and Race from Seoul to LA (Stanford, 2008); of Refusing Death: Immigrant Women Fight for Environmental Justice in LA (Stanford, forthcoming Spring 2021), and of award-winning journal articles on race and assimilation and on racial attitudes.
