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.
     For questions regarding the symposium, please contact our Symposium Editor Aida Ashouri.
