WEDNESDAY, MAY 7 from 11-2PM
SECOND ANNUAL APA COMMUNITY FAIR AT HUNTER COLLEGE!
The fair will consist of tabling by local APA community groups and will feature performances on the third floor of the Hunter West building. For those of you who have been to Hunter, it is the large lobby area outside the student cafeteria, a thoroughfare that gets a lot of visibility and foot traffic when classes are in session. Please note that we are inviting a smaller number of groups this year in order to ensure that everyone gets equal visibility and access to students.
Students, faculty, staff, and community members are welcome to join us for this FREE event, to learn more about the links between the Hunter AASP curriculum and to celebrate the work of our fantastic students and community-based partners. Last year's fair made a big impact at Hunter, bringing new students to our program AND bringing Hunter students to APA organizations!
MAY 14-18, 2014: NY Premiere of NO-NO BOY @ PAN ASIAN REPERTORY THEATRE!
Adapted from the groundbreaking novel by John Okada, NO-NO BOY follows draft resister Ichiro Yamada as he returns to Seattle following his release from prison. Ken Narasaki’s vivid adaptation depicts Ichiro’s search for resolution among family, friends, and a community in transition following the resettlement of Japanese Americans on the West Coast after the war. Written by Ken Narasaki; directed by Ron Nakahara.

Serve the People: The Asian American Movement in New York charts a history of Asian American activism, organizing, and cultural production in the 1970s, the first exhibition to focus on New York as a center of this national phenomenon. Through posters, leaflets, newspapers, film, and music, Serve the People shows how Asian American identity was shaped by reclaimed histories, revolutionary politics, feminist awareness, third worldism, and community organizing. The culture created by young activists and artists in the movement embodied their ideals, speaking to the excitement and urgency of the time. Curated by Ryan Wong.

ABOUT THE AASP, PATHWAYS, AND CUNYFIRST
All currently offered AASP courses satisfy the Pluralism & Diversity requirement as well as the new College Option that is part of Pathways. However, for students looking at the Schedule of Classes on CUNYfirst, there will be no mention of Pluralism & Diversity: courses will say that they satisfy either "College Option" or "Regular Liberal Arts." If you are an incoming student in fall '13, you abide by CUNYfirst and Pathways, but if you entered Hunter before fall '13, you still need to satisfy the old P&D and GER. All currently offered AASP courses will meet at least one of those requirements, so please visit our course listings OR email AASP Director Jennifer Hayashida for more information.
