“Asian Americans in New York: Film & Literature”

Immersive Program Examining Race and Identity Hosted in Nation’s Most Diverse and Rapidly Growing Asian American Urban Community

The Asian American Studies Program at Hunter College, CUNY invites K-12 school teachers to apply for “Asian Americans in New York: Film & Literature,” a summer seminar for school teachers funded through a generous grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. A select cohort of sixteen educators from throughout the US will participate in this unique, immersive program, through which they will develop teaching tools to engage the diverse student populations in their home states around ideas of race, immigration and identity. New York City, that multicultural urban social laboratory that has for centuries acted as the crucible from which American identity has been shaped and challenged, is home to the nation’s densest urban Asian American population, and will offer a lens into the larger sociopolitical and cultural shifts that the US is facing.

The two-week seminar, hosted in the heart of Manhattan at Hunter College, CUNY, will meet from July 5-17, 2015 for morning, afternoon, and occasional evening sessions, with readingslectures and seminar discussions interwoven with relevant field visits and conversations with novelists, filmmakers, artists and community leaders. The seminar will be co-directed by Jennifer Hayashida, Director of the Asian American Studies Program at Hunter College, CUNY, and Chi-hui Yang, film curator, educator, and former director of the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival. A stipend to help cover expenses, including travel, accommodations, and food, is provided to all participants.

Desired applicants are middle and high school English Language Arts, Social Studies, and Art instructors with a pedagogical interest in ethnic literature/film and contemporary issues around multiculturalism, racial diversity, immigration, citizenship, and national identity. The program is particularly eager to welcome summer scholars from states with limited or very concentrated Asian American populations, although it encourages all interested parties to apply. Please visit http://asianamericanyc.hunter.cuny.edu for more information, including the reading list and daily schedule. The deadline for applications is March 2, 2015
