The Case of the 22 Lewd Chinese Women
From Jennifer Bolton
Part of the Critical Encounters Lecture Series, this amazingly rich, dramatic, and charismatic trial reenactment marks the first time Chinese litigants ever appeared before the US Supreme Court. It is also a tremendously important case about Orientalism, immigration policy, state vs. Federal conflict, feminism, and more. Moderated by the Honorable Judge Denny Chin, United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, featuring Princeton University student readers, and directed by R.N. Sandberg. Cosponsored by the Department of English, Program in Law and Public Affairs, Center for African American Studies, Lewis Center for the Arts, and Asian American Students Association.
