Hong teaches courses in twentieth-century US history, immigration, US in the World, and Asian American history. 
 
Her book manuscript in progress situates the trans-Pacific movement to repeal US Asian exclusion laws in the context of black civil rights struggles at home and American military intervention in a decolonizing Asia. A multi-archival study, the project draws upon research conducted in the United States, India, and South Korea.
