Join Professor Junko Takeda as she talks about her perspectives on assumptions and attitudes that women of color in general, and Asian and Asian-American students and faculty in particular, face in academia. She will share her own experiences as an Asian American woman who immigrated to this country as a young child, grew up in the American South as an undocumented immigrant, became a first-generation college student and trained as a historian working in the field of the early modern French empire.
