In recognition of Asian and Pacific American Heritage month, this two-part event interrogates how creative and academic engagements grapple with transgenerational trauma in families. Inspired by the themes of the play ONCE UPON A (korean) TIME by Daniel K. Isaac, the panelists will engage in a conversation of how family, war (and its many definitions), and transgenerational trauma interact in different spaces within the larger Asian and Pacific Islander context. Introduction by Ida Chavoshan (NYU Liberal Studies) and moderated by Chandani Patel (NYU OGI).
Part of LS NYUWomXn100, the Haunting and Healing event series is curated by Professor Ida Chavoshan (NYU Liberal Studies).
