This year's APA Studies Symposium theme is Creating Critical Connections: Building Solidarity within Asian Pacific Islander Desi American/Asian Communities. The symposium offers 3 different formats of presentation—panel, workshop, and flash talk—and it is very supportive of anyone interested in the APIDA scholarship, including (but not limited to) faculty, staff, graduate students, and undergraduate students. The deadline for proposals is January 9th, 2023. Click here for more info!

Hi! I am Naoko Wake, the Director of the APA Studies program. I teach Asian American History (HST/MC 319), and I am passionate about studying APA families and communities. I highly recommend that you learn about their experiences, too. You will find them incredibly illuminating and empowering.
