Anti-Asian Hate, Racial Trauma, and Posttraumatic Growth, with Russell M. Jeung

April 15 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm


The Walter H. Capps Center for the Study of Ethics, Religion, and Public Life will present “Anti-Asian Hate, Racial Trauma, and Posttraumatic Growth,” a talk by Russell M. Jeung, on April 15, 2024, at 5:00pm at UCSB’s McCune Conference Room (HSSB 6020). This event is free and open to the public.
In this lecture, Russell M. Jeung explores COVID-19 racism against Asian Americans, which led to what he terms a period of “collective racial trauma.” Yet Asian Americans have been resilient in the face of this trauma. Jeung identifies three key ways that Asian Americans responded to this trauma and even grew from this painful time. Asian Americans’ posttraumatic growth, the positive psychological change after trauma incidents, will also be detailed.
Russell M. Jeung is Professor of Asian American Studies at San Francisco State University. He is the author of many books and articles on race and religion. In 2020, he co-founded Stop AAPI Hate to track instances of bias, harassment, and violence against AAPI people during Covid-19 and to fight racism.
