Episode 93: Facing Anti-Asian Hate, in and Out of Academia

This week we’re joined by Jason Oliver Chang, Associate Professor of History and Asian American Studies, to talk about the pop-up course on anti-Asian racism he helped create for UConn; the increase in anti-Asian racist incidents and attacks since the start of the pandemic; and the role of scholarship in maintaining a strong democracy. We also take a stroll on Tom’s History Sidewalk (real name pending) to the first visit by a foreign head of state to UConn.
