Asian American Studies across CUNY: Reflections, Connections, Futures on May 12, 2023 at BMCC
CUNY has been the home to vibrant student activism and organizing, collaborative networks built of scholars and practitioners, and creative interventions made to support Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) students, staff, and faculty across the university and beyond. The Asian American/Asian Research Institute (AAARI) is hosting a day-long symposium to reflect upon the histories of this work, build connection and community, and collectively vision the future possibilities and directions for Asian American studies at CUNY.
We would love for you to participate in as much of the day as is possible for you– we are excited about our program, which includes roundtables and other conversations about the past, present, and futures of Asian American studies at CUNY, as well as space for working groups and information-sharing about cross-campus collaborative work to grow AAS and our work to support AAPI communities at CUNY.
Speakers include: Dr. Kandice Chuh (Graduate Center),Dr. Francisco Delgado (BMCC), Dr. Tarry Hum (Queens College), Dr. Madhulika Khandewal (Queens College), Dr. Vivian Louie (Hunter
College), Dr. Yung-Yi Diana Pan (Brooklyn College), Dr. Aleah Ranjitsingh (Brooklyn
College), Dr. Zohra Saed (Macaulay Honors College), Sokunthary Svay (City College/
Graduate Center), and Dr. Linta Varghese (BMCC)
A conversation between author Rajiv Mohabir, author of Antiman: a Hybrid Memoir (our inaugural selection for our new AAARI Reads program) and DJ Rekha will close out our program, which will be followed by closing remarks by Frank H. Wu (President, Queens College) and a rooftop reception/end-of-year celebration!
