Event Details

The Crash of Asiana Airlines Flight 214: Stereotypes, Sensitivities, and “Sum Ting Wong.”

Kristina Chung was a speaker at the UC Davis “Culture Week,” a semester long program in which UC Davis professors, visiting professors, attorneys, and other speakers provide lectures on a variety to topics.  The presentation was titled The Crash of Asiana Airlines Flight 214: Stereotypes, Sensitivities, and “Sum Ting Wong.”   I discussed the tragic crash at SFO this past July, the KTVU broadcast in which the news anchor reported false and offensive names of the four Asiana pilots, and the aftermath.
