Hong teaches courses in post-1865 U.S. history, immigration, the United States in the World, racial violence, and comparative civil rights movements.
Her first book situates the transpacific movement to repeal America's Asian exclusion laws in the context of black civil rights struggles at home and U.S. military intervention in a decolonizing Asia. A multi-archival study, the project draws upon research conducted in four countries: the United States, India, Philippines, and South Korea.
A second book project, provisionally titled Negotiating Nation in an Age of Independence: Asian Americans and the End of Empire in Asia, examines Asian Americans’ engagement with Asian decolonization during the decade following World War II. Situating Asian American communities within a global history of decolonization, it illuminates their engagement with three global empires--British, Japanese, and American--at a moment when all three were being formally dismantled.
