Frank H. Wu, William L. Prosser Distinguished Professor of Law at UC Hastings, had a conversation with AAS Director, Vivian Louie, about civil rights, Asian Americans and Asian American Studies. Prof. Wu was previously Chancellor & Dean at UC Hastings and Dean of Wayne State University Law School. In these leadership roles as well as on faculty at Howard University, Prof. Wu was the first Asian American to serve in such a capacity. This public event was organized by Dr. Linh An and co sponsored by Asian American Studies and HCAP.

May 2019

In 2018-2019, we sponsored MATWAALA, the South Asian Diaspora Poetry Fest, Memorial Reading in honor of the late Meena Alexander, the noted poet and scholar, whose writings traversed her journeys from her birthplace in India to her distinguished professorship in English at Hunter College.

December 2018

We co-sponsored with Hunter College's AANAPISI Project a film screening of the Oscar-nominated documentary, Abacus: Small Enough to Jail. Owned by the Sung family, Abacus Federal Savings Bank was the only bank indicted for mortgage fraud in the 2008 financial crisis, and the film documents the Sung family's fight to clear their name. The screening was followed by Q & A with Chanterelle Sung, Jill Sung, Vera Sung, Chris Kwok of the Asian American Bar Association of New York and Don Lee of the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association of New York City.
