Luke Kertcher: Leftist Ideology in Asian American Communities

ASAM minor and Undergraduate Advisory Board member Luke Kertcher was recently published in the 4th volume of Unfound: The Princeton Journal of Asian American Studies. His essay, "Leftist Ideology in Asian American Communities," identifies the key organizations representing radical leftist ideology of different forms in disparate Asian American ethnic communities, as well as in the broader pan-Asian American community, using primary source documents and interviews from known leftist Asian American activists. The paper contrasts these leftist organizations with the vehemently anti-communist Vietnamese American community whose activism is centered in opposition to the Communist Party of Vietnam.
