History Café: Why America Was Not in Carlos Bulosan's Heart
MOHAI Microsoft Lakefront Pavilion

In the 1950s, the US government targeted many activists, organizers and intellectuals in the name of fighting communism. One target of investigation was Carlos Bulosan, the Seattle-based Filipino American writer and labor organizer. Drawing from his new book, Menace to Empire: Anticolonial Solidarities and the Transpacific Origins of the US Security State, UW Professor Moon-Ho Jung will situate the FBI’s investigation of Bulosan’s political activities around radical anticolonial movements across the Pacific.
