Alumni Panel: When the Bubble Bursts – Life after Haverford
Saturday, March 26 from 11:00am to 1:00pm in the Bryn Mawr room of the DC
Do you ever look around your classroom and feel like you’re one of few?
Do you live for those moments in between classes when, walking across campus, you and another student of color share a head nod of solidarity?
Do you find yourself attending career panels and noticing that the panel… doesn’t quite remind you of yourself?
Do you find yourself struggling to find a place you belong on campus, and worry that you’ll continue to struggle past graduation?
If you answered yes to any of these questions and are interested in attending contact Kayla-Marie Franceschi ‘15 (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Sponsored by Haverford House and the Multicultural Alumni Action Group.
Transnationalism, Identity, and Diaspora: Asian American Studies as the Prescient Harbinger
Thursday, April 7th in Chase Auditorium. 4:30 – 6 PM
A roundtable discussion with scholars and poets from a variety of disciplines, each bringing a complex dynamic to the growing field of Asian American Studies. Guided by student and faculty facilitators as well as panelist responses, the discussion will focus on Asian American Studies as an interdisciplinary mediator – how professionals are interacting with current, cutting-edge topics present within the field, as well as discussing the difficulties of its reception in institutions based on the Western canon.
This event is meant to foster discussion while simultaneously introducing students and scholars to the wide influence of Asian American Studies with its ties to Cultural Studies, Gender and Sexuality Studies, Visual Studies, Ethnic Studies, Literature, Poetry, Film, History, Anthropology, and Sociology. Despite the emphasis on the academic life of Asian American Studies, this panel is rooted in our lived experiences. Through discussing personal experiences, scholarly works, and various forms of fiction, non-fiction, and other literature that exhibit these qualities, the critical dialogue will start to open up the complicated, interrelated tensions between Asia, America, and all of the areas that lie between.
