Inter(sex)ionality: Asian Voices in Queer Migration
The Asian American Law Journal at Berkeley Law is proud to present our 20th anniversary symposium, Inter(sex)ionality: Asian Voices in Queer Migration
, which will be held from Monday, March 18, 2013 to Thursday, March 21, 2013 on the Berkeley Law campus
. This ground breaking symposium asks how our understanding of contemporary political events changes when we simultaneously consider race, gender, sexuality, and immigration status. It complicates hot button topics, including the efficacy of top-down human trafficking laws; the complicated relationship between hate crimes, gay suicides, bullying, and immigration; coalition building between the overlapping Asian, Latino, and Queer communities within the DREAM Act Movement; and the consequences of supporting marriage as the primary vehicle to immigration.
For questions regarding the symposium, please contact our Symposium Editors Micah West, and Samia Hossain or visit the Symposium Facebook Page.
Volume 18 was produced during the 2010-2011 school year.
