Event description: 

Join the AACC’s Political Action and Education Team as we welcome Professor Alvita Akiboh for a book talk and conversation about her recently published work, Imperial Material: National Symbols in the US Colonial Empire. This event is part of the AACC’s Pan Asian American Heritage Month Celebration: Nostalgia and the Path Forward, and we invite you to be in conversation about how US national identity has been created, challenged, and transformed through embodiments of empire found in US territories, from the US dollar bill to the fifty-star flag. These symbolic objects encode the relationships between territories—including the Philippines, the Hawaiian Islands, Puerto Rico, and Guam—and the empire with which they have been entangled. Location can be found through the event registration page.
