Chinese Immigrants, Native Americans, and the Religio-Racial Politics of Reconstruction

Fri, February 1, 2013 • 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM • SAC 5.118


Spring 2013 Speaker Series sponsored by the Center for Asian American Studies and the Native American and Indigenous Studies Program

Native American and Indigenous Studies and Asian American Studies are often perceived as fields that share little in common with each other. This series features scholars whose work defies such perceptions by exploring how these seemingly disparate fields possess overlapping and frequently, contested histories. Their work examines the shared and uneven histories of race and racial formation, colonialism, capitalism, and whiteness between and across Native American, Indigenous, and Asian American communities, and considers how indigeneity and immigration, often presumed to be essentially contradictory experiences, actually share key connections in constructions of the nation-state.

Joshua Paddison is a visiting assistant professor at Indiana University, where he teaches courses for the departments of Religious Studies, American Studies, and History. He received his Ph.D. in history from UCLA in 2008. His book American Heathens: Religion, Race, and Reconstruction in California was published in 2012 by the University of California Press and the Huntington Library.
