  • About

    My academic interests include comparative race relations and transpacific anticolonial/antiracist movements in the United States and East Asia in the twentieth century. In particular, I study black radicalism, Afro-Asian relations, and Japanese and Korean anti-imperial activism in the U.S. and Japanese empires. I am also interested in critical theory on race/ethnicity, gender/sexuality, and capitalist modernity.
