About the AASP

The Asian American Studies Program (AASP) at Hunter College of the City University of New York provides students with a multidisciplinary education in Asian diasporas with a focus on the United States and New York City. Our faculty and students are particularly interested in Asian American community organizing; urban affairs and Asian American immigrant communities in NYC; Asian American performance; Asian American labor and gender; Asian American sociolinguistics; and Asian American poetics and memoir.

The program offers a range of courses to the entire Hunter community, a minor in Asian American Studies, and extra-curricular programs and events. The program contributes to the growing scholarship in the vital field of Asian American Studies and serves as a resource for New York City’s Asian American communities and community-based organizations.

BIG thanks to all the students, faculty, staff, and community members who made 2011-2012 such an amazing year for the Asian American Studies Program! We had a slew of wildly successful events (check out our events page for pictures + info!) and had fun co-sponsoring events with the White House Initiative on Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders (WHIAAPI) and the Asian American Legal Defense & Education Fund (AALDEF). Thank you, also, to the many fabulous participants in our speakers' series "So You're Not Jeremy Lin? You've Still Got Options!" Students, faculty, and even alumni (from other campuses!) turned out to eat cupcakes and hear from writers, activists, journalists, and artists like Sonya Chung, Samhita Mukhopadyay, Young Jean Lee, and Ailsa Chang.

The AASP works closely with students to develop relevant co-curricular events! Here, a hugely successful 2008 student conference organized by CRAASH, the Coalition for the Revitalization of Asian American Studies at Hunter, one of the incredible student groups at Hunter.
