Lecture Description

As the coronavirus spread across the globe, we witnessed the rise of xenophobia, much of it aimed at Asian and Asian Americans, but also Jews, Latinx, African American and even LGBTQ populations. I argue that such a virulent response is because we are seeing the re-activation of what I term “racial scripts,” which once unleashed can be more easily applied to other marginalized groups.
