The Asian/American Studies Collective

The Asian/American Studies Collective aims to further the interdisciplinary study of the historical and contemporary experiences of racialized Asian populations in the US. We also seek to highlight the various intersections of positionalities and experiences within Asian American communities and to connect these to broader histories of other minoritized groups in the US. In recasting scholarship from an Asian American perspective, our Research Focus Group aims to draw upon and advance theoretical perspectives and methodologies in the humanities and social sciences including but not limited to ethnic, transnational, feminist, and cultural studies.
