Lecture: "Asian Americans Performing Sex, Gender, & Culture"

November 12, 2015 - 4:00pm - 5:30pm
Speaker/Participants: 
anu jain, GSWS Instructor and Visiting Scholar

Conversations about race in the U.S. often fall into a black/white binary that obscures groups like Asian Americans, who have nonetheless played a critical role in shaping how we as a nation interpret different people and bodies. This lecture showcases independent films depicting Asians in America as they navigate such cultural geographies in ways that are variously assimilatory, subversive, creative, and hilarious. 

Undergraduates welcome!
