AADS 2022 Speaker Series: History on the Run: Knowledge Formation Against State Violence
When: Friday, March 18, 2022, 12:00-1:15 PM EST
Speaker: Ma Vang
"Bridging critical Hmong studies and critical refugee studies with Asian American studies, this talk will foreground knowledge formation from community perspectives as they rub up against "official" knowledge. Taking a feminist refugee approach and the framework of history on the run, the talk will show that Hmong refugee history illuminates the group's non-state status in Southeast Asia during Cold War postcolonial Laos."
