Millett Hall Atrium
Dr. Judy Wu, associate professor of history and coordinator for the Asian American Studies Program at Ohio State University, will explore the historical origins and contemporary manifestations of how the U.S. became a "gatekeeping" nation. It will focus on the groups, many of them racialized, that the U.S. government and others have sought to exclude and restrict to socially engineer ideal Americans. This event is part of Asian Heritage Month and is sponsored by the WSU Asian/Hispanic/Native American Center.
