Lynn Mie Itagaki’s book Civil Racism: The 1992 Los Angeles Rebellion and the Crisis of Racial Burnout (University of Minnesota, 2016) examines cultural reactions to the 1992 Los Angeles rebellion (also known as the Rodney King riots). The event was anchored by calls for a racist civility, a central component of the aesthetics and politics of the post-civil rights era. Sponsored by the Diversity and Identity Studies Collective at Ohio State and Asian American Studies, the discussion is free and open to the public. More. Contact.
