The Transpacific Publics Lecture Series explores the connections between scholarship, art, and public writing as they reflect on Pacific migrations. This series of talks offers an exciting exploration of connections between area studies and ethnic studies at a time when interest in Asian American studies in transnational scope, as well issues of migration, citizenship, and racialization have become especially urgent topics of discussion, within and outside academia. The Asian American and Pacific Islander Studies Working Group in the Committee on Ethnicity, Migration, Rights continues collaboration with the Asia Center on a series of events showcasing Asian diasporic cultural production and Asian American Pacific Islander (API) studies.
This series is generously co-sponsored by Christine Yano and Neal Adolph Akatsuka, authors of Straight A's: Asian American College Students in Their Own Words.
