Dr. Marie Rose Wong: Building Tradition
Pan-Asian Seattle and Life in the Residential Hotels
Historic Seattle and the Wing Lake Museum join with Town Hall Seattle to present Dr. Marie Rose Wong, associate professor at Seattle University with focuses in Asian American studies and Urban Studies. Wong peers through the lens of single-room occupancy hotels to capture the 157-year origin story of Seattle’s pan-Asian International District. Join Dr. Wong to learn about her work that layers together interviews, maps, photographs, and insights from over a decade of primary research to provide an urgent history for Asian American activists and urban planners.
