His research and teaching interests include Asian American Studies, Comparative Ethnic Studies, American Studies, and U.S. History. A Sansei born and raised in Southern California, he is now a proud Coloradan. He is currently completing a book, Chains of Babylon: Race, Identity, and the Formation of Asian America, 1968-1975 (forthcoming from University of Minnesota Press in the Critical American Studies series), which is a cultural history of Asian American radicalism during the late 1960s and early 1970s. His next book project comparatively examines post-1968 social movements by African Americans, Asian Americans, Latinos, and Native Americans, paying special attention to internationalism and interracialism.
