Perspectives Film Screening:

The Chinese Exclusion Act

 

Friday, September 7, 2018

3:30–5:30 p.m.

 

UCI School of Law | EDU 1131

This first meeting of the Fall 2018 Perspectives Series will present Ric Burns and Li-Shin Yu’s film, The Chinese Exclusion Act . This film examines the origin, history, and impact of the 1882 law that made it illegal for Chinese workers to come to America and for Chinese nationals already here ever to become U.S. citizens. The first in a long line of laws targeting the Chinese for exclusion, it remained in force for more than 60 years.

 

Discussion will be led by Professor Kaaryn Gustafson and Professor Judy Tzu-Chun Wu.

 

Refreshments will be provided.

 

Register
 
The CLEAR Perspectives series serves as an informal setting where students and faculty can examine issues of concern to marginalized individuals and communities. At each meeting, discussion will be informed and guided by specific readings or films focusing on a particular issue or demographic.
