Dana Moss (Notre Dame) has proposed the idea of “transnational repression” to rethink how authoritarian states could threaten dissidents in exile and suppress their “voice after exit” in the democratic first world. In this seminar, we will read two chapters of her recent book The Arab Spring Abroad: Diaspora Activism against Authoritarian Regimes, and discuss its implications for studying Hong Kong diasporas. Kennedy Wong (University of Southern California) will serve as our commentator to kick off the discussion.
You will have access to the book chapters once you register. This is a discussion-only seminar. Please read the book chapters ahead of time.
