A Conversation on Indigeneity, Ethnicity and Race in Scholarship

The Center for Ethnic Studies is happy to host this panel that brings together three scholars whose brilliant work in Asian American Studies, Chicana/o and Latina/o Studies, and Native American Studies productively engages with the overlap and intersections between these terms in considering performance, history, literature, film and politics. We invite all to join in this conversation.


  • Professor Maria Josefina SaldaƱa-Portillo (NYU), author of Indian Given: Racial Geographies Across Mexico and the United States
  • Professor Brenda Child (University of Minnesota), author of Boarding School Seasons: American Indian Families, 1900-1940
  • Professor Tamara Ho (University of California, Riverside), author of Romancing Human Rights: Gender, Intimacy, and Power between Burma and the West

Following the panel, the Center for Ethnic Studies will host mini-workshops on critical questions in ethnic studies from 3:15-4:30 p.m. In this second part of the program, participants are invited to join in discussions about activism and scholarship, collaborative research, ethnic studies program building and more.
