Section Activities at the 2019 ASA Meeting in New York City

  1. Cross-border coalitions and movements for social justice
    Session Organizer: Ali Chaudhary (Rutgers University, New Brunswick)
    This session invites submissions on organizations, coalitions, and social movements that cross and transcend traditional boundaries of race, gender, class, space, and nationality in and across Asia or Asian America in its mission, membership, or key issues. We interpret “cross-border” broadly and welcome papers from cross-racial mobilization on ethnic studies/ affirmative action to transgender organizations to transnational social movements.
     
  2. Racialized bodies, citizenship, and representations
    Session Organizer: Lisa Park (UC Santa Barbara)
    This session welcomes papers that seek to explore the racialization of bodies, citizenship or representation of Asian and/ or Asian Americans. This may include such topics as immigrant deportation/ incarceration, media representations, trafficking of/ justice for sex workers, white supremacist movements, and other topics that focus on race and racism as its key analysis.
