An Evening with Yunte Huang, Author of Daughter of the Dragon, April 3 at Pitt.

The University of Pittsburgh's Asian Studies Center will present "An Evening with Yunte Huang, Author of Daughter of the Dragon" on April 3.
A Guggenheim Fellow, Yunte Huang has taught at Harvard and the University of California, Santa Barbara, where he is a professor of English. The author of “Inseparable” and the Edgar Award-winning biography “Charlie Chan”-both National Book Critics Circle Award finalists-Huang speaks frequently about American popular culture. At once a reclamation of Wong’s life and a trenchant social commentary, “Daughter of the Dragon”, with its lyrical writing and period illustrations, becomes a truly resonant work of history that reflects the raging anti-Chinese xenophobia, unabashed sexism, and ageism toward women that defined both Hollywood and America in Wong’s too-brief time on earth.
The lecture starts at 6:00 pm in the Alcoa Room of the Barco Law Building (map).
