Pamela M. Lee publishes “Open Letter to Asian Sisters” in Issue 175 of October

April 20, 2021

In response to the murders of six women of Asian descent on March 16, 2021, Professor Lee has published an “Open Letter to Asian Sisters” in the most recent issue of October. The article describes both the contemporary climate and the historical foundations for anti-Asian/AAPI racism in the country, and it reflects on both the promise and the violence that inheres in acts of naming and nomination for Asian women.
