Today, we will explore the ways in which race has been constructed in the national landscape; how anti-racist and racist movements defined national identity from World War II through the Obama and Trump presidencies. We are joined by Tony Hazard, Assistant Professor in the Ethnic Studies Department at Santa Clara University and Bannan Institute Scholar in the Ignatian Center for Jesuit Education. His first book, Postwar Anti-Racism, examines the interplay of US cultural relations, and the production of scientific theories of race at the United Nations immediately following World War II.
This episode explores the issue of racial and ethnic justice and the common good through the lens of immigration, engaging movements of assimilation and difference within the production of national identity and the pursuit of a common good. We are joined by Hsin-I Cheng, associate professor in the Communication Department at Santa Clara University and Bannan Institute Scholar, whose book Culturing Interface: Identity, Communication and Chinese Transnationalism investigates the experiences of a Chinese and Taiwanese community on the U.S. Mexico border.

His book Reclaiming Pocho Pop looks at issues of citizenship, education, and politics, related to Latinx in the U.S. Explore more of Cruz’s work on academiadecruz.com or follow him on Twitter, @academiadecruz.
In the first season of INTEGRAL, we’re exploring how issues of racial and ethnic justice intersect with the common good. Is there a common good in our common home?
