Japan on the Record

In this episode, Dr. Michael Jin (UIC) and Dr. Vivian Shaw (Harvard) react to the sharp increase in acts of discrimination, racism, and violence targeting Asian communities in North America as a result of COVID-19. Dr. Jin places this increase into the longer history of Anti-Asian xenophobia and violence in North America, while Dr. Shaw documents how Asian-American and Pacific Islander communities are responding to both COVID-19 and to recent acts of racism.
