Mary Lui of Yale University will explore the resulting narratives of racial and sexual danger after the murder of a young, white missionary in New York City. The “Chinatown Trunk Murder” revealed widespread concerns about interracial social and sexual mixing during the Chinese Exclusion era. Professor Lui will also examine how the murder case provoked far-reaching concerns about efforts to limit the social and physical mobility of Chinese immigrants and white working-class and middle-class women in this period. Finally, the conversation will explore the contemporary politics of race, gender, and sexuality and how they shape public responses to the presence of Chinese immigrants in the United States.
The Community Conversation series is free and open to the public. If you have any questions about the event please contact Settlement Programs Manager Ana Nuncio at 978-744-0991 x105 or [email protected]
