This event is part of two current undergraduate community-engaged courses—one on Asian diasporic history and the other on the military-industrial complex based in D.C.—that belong to the new and upcoming Critical Diaspora Studies (CDS) major at Hopkins. CDS will enable students to study the solidarities and dissonances between geographical and cultural areas of study such as Asian-American, African diaspora, Indigenous, and Latinx studies. 

This event is open to JHU students, faculty, and staff, as well as members of the public. Pre-registration is required. KSAS undergraduate students traveling from Baltimore are eligible to receive complimentary train tickets.

Funding for this event provided by a JHU Nexus Award and The Chloe Center for the Critical Study of Racism, Immigration, and Colonialism. Co-sponsored by Critical Responses to Anti-Asian Violence (CRAAV).
