Each year, the A/P/A Institute at NYU sponsors scholars and artists to further research projects using the libraries and archives at NYU. This semester, the Institute hosts its second Scholar Slam featuring 10-minute (and 10-slide) presentations from current Visiting Scholars. BeatriceGlow will channel the Apprentice of the Ghost of Gauguin, divulging western-centric social imaginaries through a carousel of color and spices–all part of her artist book project, Post-Colonial Pantone Palette. Ryan Wong will share his findings on the development of Asian American identity through activist and artistic practices of the 1970s and 80s. Andy Yanexamines the ownership patterns of real estate in New York City, with a focus on Manhattan’s Chinatown, and investigate the relationships (if any) between these patterns and transnational flows of people and capital from China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.
We’ll toast the end of the semester following the presentations.
