ARCHIVED: Judy Wu: Dr. Mom Chung of the Fair-Haired Bastards: The Life of a Wartime Celebrity
Judy Wu, author of Dr. Mom Chung of the Fair-Haired Bastards: The Life of a Wartime Celebrity will discuss Margaret Jessie Chung (1889-1959), the first American-born Chinese female physician, and a pioneer not only in her professional career but also in her personal life. This talk, which will include a short digital narrative of Chung’s life, examines her gender presentations and erotic subjectivity through photographs, diary entries, and “love” letters. It also explores how to historically investigate sexuality.
