Event description: 

The conference brings together scholars from the humanities and STEM fields who are actively engaged in exploring the history of race and racialization in their respective fields. The conference will address research and pedagogy. The conference offers an opportunity to explore the ways in which the afterlife of Asian exclusion and postwar struggles over Civil Rights and racial inequality have continued to shape the lived experiences and scholarship of Asian and Asian American scientists and their respective fields. The conference will also address the scientific research undertaken by Asian Americans in these fields to understand the impact of their respective work as well as examine the ways in which their work has been remembered, obfuscated, or erased in standard histories of scientific discovery and invention.
