As we reflect on the moment, twenty-five years ago, when a group of passionate and dedicated students organized and agitated for the establishment of an Asian/Pacific/American Studies Program and Institute at NYU, we are reminded again of the critical need for A/P/A Studies now and always. To highlight recent developments in the field and new directions in scholarship, we are thrilled to host current NYU graduate students to present on their masters theses and dissertations-in-progress.
This showcase will bring into conversation Puanani Brown (MA candidate, NYU Food Studies), Weiyu Dang (PhD candidate, NYU American Studies), Cindy Gao (PhD candidate, NYU American Studies), Linda Luu (PhD candidate, NYU American Studies), Chloe Truong-Jones (PhD candidate, NYU American Studies), and Mariko Whitenack (PhD candidate, NYU American Studies).
Following brief presentations from the students, professors Aimee Bahng (Pomona College), Candace Fujikane (University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa), and Mimi Thi Nguyen (University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign) offer comments and Dean Saranillio (Interim Director, A/P/A Institute at NYU) moderates a discussion.
