Please join us for a talk by Nitasha Tamar Sharma, Professor of African American Studies and Asian American Studies at Northwestern University. Professor Sharma will be discussing her new book Hawai’i is my Haven: Race and Indigeneity in the Black Pacific (Duke University Press, 2021).

A comparative race studies scholar, Nitasha Tamar Sharma is a professor of African American Studies and Asian American Studies at Northwestern University, where she was the Charles Deering Professor of Teaching Excellence. Hawai’i is my Haven is an ethnography that maps the context and contours of Black life in the Hawaiian Islands to highlight the paradox of Hawaiʻi as a multiracial paradise and site of unacknowledged antiBlack racism. Dr. Sharma is also the author of Hip Hop Desis: South Asian Americans, Blackness, and a Global Race Consciousness (Duke University Press 2010), and co-editor of Beyond Ethnicity: New Politics of Race in Hawai‘i (University of Hawai‘i Press, 2018), a special issue of Critical Ethnic Studies Journal on Trans-Pacific and Pacific Islands Studies.

This event is co-sponsored by Black Studies, the College of Urban and Public Affairs (CUPA), the Cultural Resource Centers, English, Indigenous Nations Studies, and the Pacific Islander and Asian American (PIAA) Studies Initiative.
