Wednesday, February 5, 2014 from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM (PST)
Los Angeles, CA
Join us for a book talk and signing by Judy Tzu-Chun, Associate Professor of History and Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Ohio State University, as she shares her new publication, Radicals on the Road: Internationalism, Orientalism, and Feminism during the Vietnam War Era
"...Judy Tzu-Chun Wu takes up the story of a handful of U.S. antiwar activists who visited Vietnam, as well as China, Cambodia, and North Korea, in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Most of them were radicals who...had come to see U.S. foreign policy as a thinly veiled colonial project that was, if not immoral, at least deeply flawed and bound together with racism and exploitative capitalism."—Robert Self, Brown University, author of All in the Family: The Realignment of American Democracy
Copies of the book will be available for purchase.
