The first 25 minutes of this event will be the monthly AAPI Studies Working Group meeting, which will begin at 3:30, followed by Professor Borja's talk at 4pm.
Join us for a conversation with professor Melissa Borja (AB '04, 2020-21 Faculty Fellow at the Charles Warren Center for American History). In this talk, she will discuss the challenges and potentials of working at the intersection of religious studies, legal history, and ethnic studies.
Prof. Borja is Assistant Professor in the Department of American Culture and a core faculty member in the Asian/Pacific Islander American Studies Program at the University of Michigan.
This event is part of AAPISWG’s newly launched conversation series, A conversation with AAPI Harvard scholars. In this series of monthly conversations, AAPISWG invites Harvard scholars (faculty members, research scholars, visiting faculty, and postdoctoral fellows) whose research and teaching encompasses the histories, literatures, cultures and contemporary realities of Asian American and Pacific Islander communities. Through this conversation series, we aim to increase the opportunities for informal, friendly discussions and interactions between faculty members and students of the Harvard community.
