OT: Association for Asian American Studies

At the 102nd Annual Meeting of the American Sociological Association (ASA) this past weekend in New York City, I attended the Section on Asia and Asian Americans reception. It was in Chinatown at a Vietnamese restaurant with tres yummy food.

A few of the faculty who attended this reception suggested attending the Association for Asian American Studies conference in 2008 that's happening in Chicago. Here are the event details:


Where is the “Heart” of Asian America?:

Deadline for paper submissions is October 2007. Perhaps a few of the AAAGS members can get together to organize a paper session? There's enough of us doing work now in the areas of humanities and social sciences to get one session together.
