Asian American HistoryAsia and the U.S. Midwest are separated by the world’s largest ocean and at least half a continent. Small wonder then, that Asian Americans account for a smaller proportion of the total population in the Midwest than they do in other, more accessible, regions. Relatively fewer in numbers, though they may be, Asian Americans have played a pivotal role in the history and development of industrial Midwest cities such as Detroit and Milwaukee.
On May 1st and 2nd, the Humanities Without Walls Consortium and the University of Wisconsin Department of History hosts “Performing History: Documenting and Enacting the Asian American Midwest.” Joining us now in the studio are: Timothy Yu, Associate Professor of English and Asian American Studies. Also, Victor Jew, Senior Lecturer in Asian Studies and Rebecca Kinney, Assistant Professor of American Culture Studies at Bowling Green State University. All three will speak on a panel on May 2nd.
