Presented by the NYU Department of Media, Culture and Communication. Cosponsored by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU and NYU Center for Multicultural Education and Programs.

This panel brings together Asian American activists, scholars, and media practitioners to critically examine ways we negotiate popular media as spaces for activism and resistance, as well as spaces to negotiate concepts of ‘belonging.’ How might our media activism begin working beyond narrowly defined visions of border and diaspora to create stronger collaborative movements and build solidarity within and beyond our multiple communities?
