Debunking Asian Privilege Workshop

The NYU Center for Multicultural Education and Programs (NYU CMEP) is hosting “Debunking Asian Privilege Workshop”, an interactive workshop that will engage critically with the notion of “Asian privilege”. You will confront the notion of “Asian privilege” as an offshoot of the model minority myth and its impact on those who do not fit within the stereotypical model of East Asian America (e.g. Southeast Asians and Pacific Islanders). You will also discuss how privilege as an intersectional phenomenon, manifests within the Asian American community, and the implications of “Asian privilege” for solidarity amongst Asian Americans and other people of color. 

When: Tomorrow (Thursday), April 24 from 5 PM - 7 PM

Where: Kimmel 806 (NYU CMEP)

Admission: Free! RSVP and find out more information about the workshop on their Facebook event

Generasian is wishing all of our readers a very happy Lunar New Year! In case you couldn’t tell from the picture, this year is the Year of the Horse. Supposedly, people born in a Year of the Horse are energetic, intelligent, and have great communication skills. They are somewhat impatient and can have a quick temper - especially when confronted with failure. 

Some NYU clubs are hosting events where you can enjoy some yummy Asian food and celebrate the Lunar New Year in style. We’re also posting some events happening outside of NYU. And of course, to keep in line with our poor college student budget, ALL EVENTS ARE FREE!
