Inside Stories/Outside Tales

Inwardly Defiant: Yunte Huang and Celine Shimizu

Celebrated author, Guggenheim Fellow and UCSB professor Yunte Huang reads from his latest book, Daughter of the Dragon, an in-depth exploration of Anna May Wong, the first Chinese American film star who both encouraged and defied the Hollywood industry’s efforts to categorize her. Huang is interviewed by Celine Parreñas Shimizu, film scholar, filmmaker, and Dean of the Division of the Arts, and Distinguished Professor of Film and Media at UC Santa Cruz. She is formerly Professor and Director of the School of Cinema at San Francisco State University and Professor of Asian American, Feminist, and Film and Media Studies at UC Santa Barbara.
