Julia Lee, Associate Professor and Memoirist

Fulbright scholar and Associate Professor Julia Lee’s new memoir, “Biting the Hand: Growing Up Asian in Black and White America” examines Asian American identities through the lens of her experience as a Korean American born and raised in Los Angeles. She grapples with the model minority myth, racial hierarchies, and the unique challenges of being Asian American in white-dominated spaces in elite academia. Learn more about Julia.
