Survey on “Engaging Blackness in Asian Studies”

The 2021 Virtual ASIANetwork Annual Conference will include a roundtable titled, “Engaging Blackness in Asian Studies.” This roundtable, focusing on the state of the field, will discuss the academic study of the lived experience of Blackness in Asia, its depiction in Asian Studies, and the work of African American and other Black scholars of Asia.  Moderated by Dr. Nitasha Sharma, a comparative race studies scholar from Northwestern University, the roundtable also will ask participants to explore ways that ASIANetwork could support undergraduate teaching in this area.  

Roundtable: Saturday, April 17, 6:30pm
