UW Hmong Heritage Month: Dr. Ma Vang
Dr. Vang's talk will highlight key arguments from her book, History on the Run: Secrecy, Fugitivity, and Hmong Refugee Epistemologies, to show how the history of Hmong soldiering for US liberal militarized empire effaced Hmong experiences of racism and state violence. Furthermore, the talk will underscore how Hmong history exceeds US state secrecy. It persists as fugitive knowledge, that continues to unfold through the everyday acts of silence, activism, refusal, in Hmong American literature.
This event is over.
