What are the Asian and Asian-American discrimination issues that students, teachers, and individuals are struggling to understand in today’s globalized world? How do teachers interweave the politics of immigration into world history and civics curriculum? What makes a place a home for someone, and how do we build on the storyscapes of the under-written histories of anti-Asian racism and Asian-American identity?

Removing the screen from “over there,” experts in Area and Asian-American studies will explore identity, immigration and nationality and provide a discussion forum for applying these ideas into classroom use. Content covered will include snapshots from mid-19th century-20th century histories of China, Japan and Korea; the push-pull factors for immigration; exclusionary immigration policies; and the nuances of Asian American identity. Insights will be made into Asian-ness as well as “Asian-Americanness,” with one of the takeaways being the “hyphen" in hyphenated ethnicities, the middle ground to individuality and self.


A virtual learning event through morning mini-talks followed by conversation/Q&A and an afternoon collaborative discussion forum bracketed according to grade level.

Suggestions for pre-workshop reading will be available.

Resources and books available through the U-M Books for Peaceful Purposes Grant.

Looking forward to another amazing interactive day of knowledge, expertise and networking... the outreach team at TVI East Asia Centers, University of Michigan
