Convergences: Charting New Possibilities for Asian American Writing During Times of Crisis

Convergences: Charting New Possibilities for Asian American Writing During Times of Crisis

Panel and Reading by Chen Chen, Danni Quintos, and SJ Sindu
Moderated by M. Eliatamby-O'Brien

As part of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, the Asian Studies Program, EthicsLab, and CWU Libraries are bringing together three Asian American writers to read and discuss their work: Chen Chen, Danni Quintos, and SJ Sindu. Work by these writers engage with themes of gender, sexuality, raciality and racism, intimacy, transpacific migration, and family. They also touch on significant historical experiences for Asian North American communities while helping envision new possibilities and sites of connection for Asian American futures.

In preparation for the public discussion, graduate students and faculty in English will lead a generative workshop drawing on the work of the featured authors. The panel and workshop will be supported by a resource and reading list created by CWU Libraries which will include suggested reading, listening, and watching for cultivating greater awareness about racism against Asian Americans in the United States.
