Beyond Borders: Social Movements, Immigrants, and New York City in the Transnational Context, 1895-1940
Join the Gotham Center for New York City for a forum that will explore the connections between immigration, race, policy, and social movements in New York City from the beginning of the "yellow peril" in the 1890s to the start of the Pacific War in the early 1940s, placing them into a transnational context. Topics examined will include anti-Japanese pulp novels from the turn of the twentieth century, the anti-German movement during WWI, the origins and work of the Issei radical movement in the 1920s, and Chinese-American labor and social activism during the 1930s. Panelists include Daniel Inuoye, Asian-American Center, Queens College; Dylan Yeats, New York University; Renqui Yu, Purchase, SUNY; and Christina Zeigler-McPherson, Museum of the City of New York.
