Time: 1:30 - 3 p.m.
Host: Center for Ethnic Studies
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 Saldaña-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

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.
