There is a fantastic series of seminars going on at University of Southern California, as part of the Sawyer-Mellon Seminars. It is called: Critical Mixed Race Studies–A Transpacific Approach. This seminar is being held on weekends throughout the school year.
This is the first in a series of ongoing video projects based on my personal family history, historical memory, Asia-Pacific postwar ethnography and the historical present. It is on my channel at YouTube.
This weekend I presented on two panels at the conference:
Evangeline Buell, a Filipina activist, writes a memoir that includes the lesser known stories of the African-American “Buffalo Soldiers” of the Civil War, who were sent to the Philippines for the war there (and subsequent U.S. occupation) and their relationships with women of the Philippines.
