Grace Hyungwon Hong, Associate Professor of Women’s and Asian American Studies at UCLA
“Death Beyond Disavowal: Women of Color Feminism, Neoliberalism, and the Impossible Politics of Difference”
Dr. Hong’s research focuses on women of color feminism as an epistemological critique. She is the author of The Ruptures of American Capital: Women of Color Feminism and the Cultures of Immigrant Labor (University of Minnesota Press, 2006) and the co-editor of Strange Affinities: The Gender and Sexual Politics of Comparative Racialization (Duke University Press, 2011).
Hong’s talk at UO will elaborate on her engagement with neoliberalism as first and foremost a structure of disavowal, enacted as a reaction to the successes of movements for decolonization, desegregation, and liberation in the post-WW II era.
