Asian American Media: Stereotypes and Resistance

Frances Kai-Hwa Wang

Using Asian American stereotypes in the media as an easy and visual entry point into Asian American history, Frances Kai-Hwa Wang will examine connections between Asian American media stereotypes, historical anxieties, and what contemporary Asian American creatives are doing to clap back. This history of resistance is more relevant than ever today, for all minorities—Wang challenges us to become critical readers, savvy media consumers, and activist content creators.
