BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE SEMINAR

Drawing on contemporary Asian American film, video and literature, this interdisciplinary seminar for K-12 teachers will provide participants with a twenty-first century perspective on Asian American cultural production and communities in New York City. Against the backdrop of generation-shifting conversations around immigration reform, demographic change, and the ascendancy of Asian American writers and filmmakers, the seminar will examine Asian American communities and the arts in new and critical ways, and in so doing locate teaching tools which harness the complexity, diversity and dynamism of this rapidly growing population. All materials will examine these questions through the lens of New York City – that multicultural urban social laboratory which has for centuries acted as the crucible from which American identity has been shaped and challenged.
