What's the (T)ea?: Does Racism Exist in East Asia?
Addressing "Race" in China, Japan, and Korea
Monday, April 22, 2019 · 5:30 PM - 7 PM
This series is geared towards exploring social justice needs for various marginalized populations. We all talk about how diverse UMBC is but, what does that mean in reality? How does it show up in how we communicate and interact with each other? When does celebrating diversity shift into inclusivity that creates positive social change in and outside our campus community? This series hopes to help us grapple with these questions. Join us for a facilitated discussion of these topics, voice your opinions, and hear those of your fellow community members.
This session will be an analysis of how the three countries of China (and Hong Kong), Korea, and Japan each looks at race. We will look at how each country treats minorities, and look at minority rights, whether the economy supports foreign imports, and national anthems to see how the government views race.
All undergrads, grads, staff, and faculty are encouraged to attend! Need to request disability-based accommodations or have any questions?
