Cathy Park Hong is an award-winning poet and essayist whose book, Minor Feelings: An Asian American Reckoning, is a searching work that ruthlessly reckons with the American racial consciousness. Hong weaves together personal stories, historical context, and cultural criticism to ultimately create an emotional and impactful exploration of Asian American personhood.

Cathy Park Hong will be in conversation with Peter Ho Davies, U-M Professor of English Language and Literature, discussing her life and work.

Free and open to the public; please arrive early as seating is limited.

"Major Feelings" is the 2024 Marc and Constance Jacobson Lecture. To learn more about the lectureship, visit
