Come out to New York City’s Asian American Student Conference!
NYCAASC is a collaborative effort with students from various schools such as NYU, Columbia, Barnard, Hunter College, Baruch and City College. On April 27th they’re hosting a free event at the NYU Kimmel Center. It’s a conference that consists of a broad range of engaging workshops and panels intended to encourage attendees to think critically about Asian American issues. According to the group:
“The theme for this year’s conference is En Route. In past conferences, we examined different notions of Asian American identity and how Asian Americans are reclaiming authorship of their stereotyped representations. This year, we seek to explore how Asian Americans are reinventing themselves by moving beyond their own communities and contributing to an intercultural dialogue.”
Check it out! It’s free and sounds awesome. If you’re still not convinced, watch their promotional video above. You can even volunteer by visiting their site, and clicking on the “Register” button. Spread the word!
