Professor Vernadette Gonzalez recently sat down with Ivan Natividad of Berkeley News to talk about her wide-ranging research and teaching interests. They discuss the impact of U.S. colonialism and capitalism on Filipinx people in Hawaii, how Filipinx residents have found commonalities and belonging in Hawaii, and why it is important for Filipinx students and researchers to share their stories about what it means to be Filipinx and/or Filipinx American.
