Strangers & Stereotypes: The Impact of the Lack of Representation of Asian-Americans in the Media on Society & the Law
AALJ will be organizing its annual symposium on Thursday, March 13, 2014, “Strangers and Stereotypes: The Impact of the Lack of Representation of Asian-Americans in the Media on Society and the Law.”
The symposium will consist of a lunch panel from12:45PM-2:00PM, in Boalt 105, with distinguished speakers John Tehranian and Rose Cuison Villazor, who will lead a discourse on how perceptions of the “norm in our society” have affected the status of Asian Americans, specifically within the legal field.
Our afternoon panel, from 2:30PM - 4:00PM in the Warren Room, which features distinguished speakers Madhavi Sunder, Hatem Bazian, and Stewart Chang, will focus on an array of significant issues facing the Asian-American community in its efforts to create its own identity, juxtaposed against an identity that has been constructed for it. There will be a reception following the panels from 4:30PM-6:00PM in the Goldberg Room for the students and speakers. The reception will also feature Karima Bennoune, who will be presenting her new book, Your Fatwa Does Not Apply Here
, which will be available for purchase during the reception.
