About Race, Migration, & Indigeneity
The inter- and multidisciplinary field of Race, Migration, & Indigeneity considers the ways in which race interweaves with historical and contemporary formations of identity as communities and individuals flow (migration) and connect with space and place (indigeneity), as well as their relationships (both foundational and antagonistic) towards nation-states.

Inspired by and for the semester-long celebration of Korea Remixed, here is a playlist of forward-thinking sounds from Korean artists.

Korean American Perspectives by the Council of Korean Americans

Feeling Asian by Youngmi Mayer & Brian Park
A podcast where two Asians talk about their feelings. After a lifetime of holding in their emotions (shoutout to Korean moms!), comedians Youngmi Mayer and Brian Park are ready to let them all out. Each week, Youngmi and Brian dive into topics that range from sex/dating to umm...not sex/dating stuff, and invite their interesting friends along the way. Who knew catharsis could look so Asian?
