Perception Of Sex Education And Menstruation Among Asian American Communities, Ivy Lin Wu 2018 State University of New York at Stony Brook

Perception Of Sex Education And Menstruation Among Asian American Communities, Ivy Lin Wu

Asian & Asian American Studies Student Research Symposium

The purpose of this research is to gather information about sex education (in particular, menarche) in Asian American communities. Sex education and the materials taught varies throughout the world. I am curious with the depth in which certain topics are explored, and our personal experiences with sex education outside the classroom, particularly amongst Asian American girls.

Being Invisible: Asian American And Pacific Islander Students On Campus, Julian Neely, Maeve Mccloskey, Jazlyn Talley, Nayelie Valenzuela

Iowa State Conference on Race and Ethnicity (ISCORE)

As diversity and inclusion committees and administration change policies to become more inclusive, who’s invited to the conversation? In matters of diversity and race, Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) students are often left out of the conversation at Iowa State University. This session will cover the issues that AAPI students face as both the “model minorities” (a stereotype of being academically advanced with high achievements in the STEM field and being complacent with issues of social justice) and “invisible minorities” (underrepresented in multiple aspects in society) at Iowa State. A content analysis of current diversity and inclusion policies ...


From Citizens To Elected Representatives: The Political Trajectory Of Asian American Pacific Islanders By 2040, Christine Chen, James Lai, Karthick Ramakrishnan, Alton Wang 2018 Santa Clara University

From Citizens To Elected Representatives: The Political Trajectory Of Asian American Pacific Islanders By 2040, Christine Chen, James Lai, Karthick Ramakrishnan, Alton Wang

James Lai

The political power of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) has increased steadily in the United States. By 2040, one in ten Americans will be AAPI, and the number of Asian Americans registered to vote will have doubled (Ong, Ong, and Ong, 2016). This section examines the growing AAPI electorate and projects a trajectory for AAPI civic engagement and political participation from now until 2040. By looking at trends and projections for citizenship, voter registration, voter turnout, elected officials, and political infrastructure, the authors illustrate that AAPI political empowerment will have even a greater influence on the future of American ...


The Taiko Connection: Reclaiming History, Activating Equality, Tamiko Cavey 2018 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo

The Taiko Connection: Reclaiming History, Activating Equality, Tamiko Cavey

History

Taiko drumming has been a Japanese cultural art form from as early as the fifth century. A taiko "boom" in which ensemble groups gained popularity took off in Japan post-WWII, and in the United States during the late 1960s-early 1970s amid the Asian American Civil Rights Movement. In discussing the historical experiences of the burakumin outcastes of Japan and Japanese Americans, this paper explores how taiko has been used as a form of social activism for these marginalized groups, and how this cultural reclamation facilitates the process of developing self-identity.

Contested Identity And Making Sense Of Atrocity: Understanding The Rohingya Crisis In Myanmar, Christopher Andrew Long 2018 Bard College

Contested Identity And Making Sense Of Atrocity: Understanding The Rohingya Crisis In Myanmar, Christopher Andrew Long

Senior Projects Spring 2018

Myanmar’s recent transition towards democracy has caused western leaders to become increasingly optimistic about the future of human rights within the country. However, since emerging on the international stage in 2012, the Rohingya crisis has drastically upset such expectations, leaving the international community in complete shock over the issue. Attempting to shed light on this human rights tragedy, international media coverage has produced an overly simplified depiction of the Rohingya crisis. In addition, very little academic literature exists seeking to explain the root causes of the issue. By utilizing interviews conducted at the University of Mandalay this paper attempts ...

Korean American Studies: Then And Now, Ashley Chong 2018 University of Iowa

Korean American Studies: Then And Now, Ashley Chong

Honors Theses at the University of Iowa

This thesis is a literature review of Korean American studies that compares work from the Old Guard (pre-2000s) and the New Guard (post-2000s) with the goal of finding an overarching trend occurring over time. Through analyzing sources from multiple disciplines, I argue that the main trend from the Old Guard to the New Guard is a pulling away from South Korea. As the Korean American Studies field progressed, it found itself needing to create distance between itself and South Korea. Because of how traditional Korean values were overturned and questioned due to immigrating to the United States, Korean Americans claimed ...

Seeking Justice: Mobilizing The South Asian Community In The Face Of Sexual Assault, Sagarika Gami

Pomona Senior Theses

This thesis looks at how the rule of law fails to achieve justice for Indian-American survivors of domestic violence in a multitude of ways, corresponding to class and religious positionality, as well as documentation status, and how the Indian community mobilizes in response to these failures by creating alternative modes of justice for survivors. Historically, these alternatives have taken form as direct service organizations, providing culturally and linguistically accessible services to survivors. I contend that these are helpful on an individual level, working to interrupt cycles of violence, but not at the collective level – stopping these cycles altogether. Given the ...


The Promised Land: A Postcolonial Homiletic Of Promise In The Asian American Context, Sunggu Yang 2018 George Fox University

The Promised Land: A Postcolonial Homiletic Of Promise In The Asian American Context, Sunggu Yang

Faculty Publications - College of Christian Studies

Asian American Christians carry within them a triple consciousness by being Asian, American, and Christian. Being Christian specifically means being a pilgrim bound for the Promised Land. The Asian American pilgrim preacher’s message issues from this triple consciousness and from a spirit of postcolonial liberation. Such a preacher’s message is therefore a declaration or assurance of God’s liberative promise of the Promised Land for Asian Americans, the Land already being realized here and now in the foreign land. By being this-earthly and other-worldly, the pilgrim preacher’s message is synthetic-ethical in nature. This article shows that the ...
