This semester, visiting professor Gary Okihiro is teaching an introductory history of race in the U.S., including the intersections of racializations, as social constructions, with imperialism and conquest, science and explanation, gender and sexuality, and geography and place, and the policing of those taxonomies and their borders and violations.
Prof. Gary Y. Okihiro is a prominent Asian American author and scholar. He is a professor of international and public affairs at Columbia University in New York City and the founding director of Columbia’s Center for the Study of Ethnicity and Race. In 2012, Prof. Okihiro recieved the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Association for Asian American Studies.
We strongly recommend this course for any students potentially interested in Asian American Studies, or just looking to expand their academic horizons!
