Hong teaches courses in twentieth-century US history, immigration, US in the World, and Asian American history. 
Her book manuscript in progress situates the transpacific 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 four countries: the United States, India, Philippines, and South Korea.
