MIT Professor Gang Chen will discuss his recent wrongful prosecution by the U.S. government under the Justice Department’s “China Initiative,” how the scientific community mobilized to fight it, and the increasing fear of such prosecutions—particularly among scientists of Asian origin. The talk will conclude with his reflection on the question, “who are Americans?”
