Judy Tzu-Chun Wu (Ohio State University) | Hypervisibility and Invisibility: Asian/American Women, Radical Orientalism, and the Revisioning of Global Feminism
Kaprelian Hall (KAP) (Map)
Studies of global feminism have critiqued the disproportionate power and the misperceptions of white middle-to-upper class women from the “West” in shaping these international alliances. In contrast, this talk examines how “Third World” women, both those from the global South as well as racialized women in the United States, fostered and deployed female internationalism during the “long” decade of the 1960s. In particular, this presentation foregrounds the agency and perspectives of both Asian and Asian American women during the U.S. War in Vietnam.
