  • Virtual

    Please join Kerry Abrams, James B. Duke and Benjamin N. Duke Dean of the School of Law, for a conversation on the recent increase in anti-Asian violence in the U.S. Panelists will provide key frameworks for understanding and disrupting the nuanced ways in which structural racism in America uniquely impacts those who identify and who are identified as Asian American and Pacific Islander, including the "model minority myth" and "foreigner status." They will then discuss how all types of anti-Asian bias can be placed within these analyses to understand the context for what can seem like individualized and isolated issues. Attendees will walk away with a better understanding of how anti-Asian bias and discrimination fits within broader structural racism concepts and will be challenged to consider our implicit biases. The panel will include Robert Chang JD/MA '92, Executive Director, Fred T. Korematsu Center for Law and Equality and Professor of Law, Seattle University School of Law; Stephen Lee, Professor of Law and Associate Dean for Faculty Research and Development, UC-Irvine School of Law; and Jo-Ann Yoo, Executive Director, Asian American Federation. Moderated by Bethan Eynon, Director of Public Interest Careers. Open to all. Please register in advance with your netID@duke.edu email address at https://bit.ly/2QiDnKU.

    Investor Bill Hwang set off a storm in the stock market in March when his firm, Archegos Capital Management, and its banks, began liquidating huge positions in blue-chip companies, according to people familiar with the transactions. The sales sent individual stocks swooning and have left at least three banks with major damage.

Please join us for a panel discussion with Professors Gina-Gail Fletcher, Elisabeth de Fontenay, Jim Cox, Lee Reiners, and Lawrence Baxter on why Archegos failed, who got hurt, and what should be done about it.
