Asian American Studies 101: Getting to Know Our Asian American Community through an Ethnic Studies Lens

Post-workshop Smiles: Asian-American Studies participants

In this interactive workshop, participants will learn about Asian American experiences and struggles through an ethnic studies lens.  Topics will include anti-Asian racism and COVID-19, Asian American mental health, the model minority myth, racial triangulation, and cross-racial solidarity.  Because Asian Americans historically have been pitted against other communities of color (especially Black communities), developing an understanding of the racialized experience of Asian Americans will not only help us (faculty, staff and administrators) to better understand and serve our Asian American student populations but will also help us to develop a better understanding of the relationships among different racial groups.


Poly-synchronous: Thursday, November 5, 1 – 4 p.m.

6 PD Hours | $100 stipend for faculty who complete the final reflection

Two seats available!

Please register by October 29 to receive the pre-workshop homework.

Questions about these sessions should be directed to Nan Ma, English and Cultural and Ethnic Studies.
