Why BTS and K-Pop should matter to Asian Americans with sociologist Grace Kao

Asian American Studies poster Why BTS and K-Pop Should Matter

Wed., Nov. 17th
4-5:30PM | Online

BTS (Bangtan Sonyeondan or 방탄소년단) is the most prominent K-Pop group and one of the world’s most popular musical groups today. How does their worldwide visibility – and public stands on BLM, racial solidarity, and gender identity – affect images of Koreans and Asians, and the identities of Asian Americans? Sociologist Grace Kao will introduce us to K-Pop, and share some video clips and reflections of BTS’s impact on arts and activism. She will also present ongoing research on the influence of K-Pop and BTS in transforming “live” musical performances during the COVID- 19 pandemic.

Grace Kao is IBM Professor of Sociology and Professor of Ethnicity, Race, and Migration at Yale University.

Organized by: Asian American Studies Program
