“AAPI Voices, Past and Present”
Virtual event via Crowdcast
Registration required; register here or below

Alison Roh Park and Angel Velasco Shaw lead an interdisciplinary exploration of Asian American and Pacific Islander experiences in the United States.
For centuries, dominant narratives of American history have obscured the experiences and perspectives of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) in the United States. This program features Alison Roh Park and Angel Velasco Shaw as they use cross-disciplinary lenses including poetry, multimedia, personal narrative and history to illuminate these stories, offering a platform for exploration of AAPI identity and representation over time. A conversation between the speakers and Q&A with audience members will follow the presentations.
