Seeking a revolution » Nichi Bei

Nichi Bei writes about "Asian American Matters: A New York Anthology," and seeking a revolution: As a grad student of Asian American studies at San Francisco State University, my account of Leong’s book is compelling, nostalgic, and that it inspires the idea of a possible Asian studies renaissance. “Asian American Matters” critiques the course of Asian American Studies from its inception to present day, and it flirts with the idea of becoming ever more inclusive. https://www.nichibei.org/2019/01/seeking-a-revolution/
