Asian American Studies

This FIGS will introduce students to the diversity of Asian American peoples and cultures in the U.S. and help them develop a better understanding of one of our country’s most vibrant sub-populations. Looking at both cinematic and literary works, we will discuss topics such as history, stereotypes of the “Model Minority” and the “Perpetual Foreigner,” language, society, and popular culture. Meet faculty and staff members affiliated with the Collective for Asian American Studies; explore related study abroad, academic, and involvement opportunities; and network with peers who are also interested in cultural awareness.
