The Asian American Studies Program's 5th Anniversary Celebration
Wednesday, February 15, 2012
The Asian American Studies Program welcomes artist and memoirist GB Tran. The son of immigrants who fled the fall of Saigon and settled in the United States, Tran explores his family's history in his acclaimed graphic memoir VIETNAMERICA (Villard, 2011). Library Journal declared: “This will be called the MAUS for the Vietnam War, and for good reason. Similar premise: clueless American-born son of immigrants confronts the legacy of family pain predating his birth. Similar outcome: a kick-in- the-gut graphic novel... he purposely fragments the plot, shifting points of view, narrative voices, and settings while the reader—as did Tran—must assemble the pieces to learn how his parents became the people he knew.” Tran will show slides of VIETNAMERICA, discuss his work, and answer questions from the audience. His website is http://www.gbtran.com/. This event is co-sponsored by the Department of English and the College of Liberal Arts.

Asian American photography exhibition at the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette
102 S. 10th Street, Lafayette, IN 47905
Along with the Asian American Network of Indiana and Color Tech, the Council on Asian American Studies is proud to support "commUNITY," a provocative photographic exhibition by Lafayette photographer William L. Snyder that documents the realities and experiences of Asian Americans who live, work, and go to school in Greater Lafayette. Through black and white portraits accompanied by brief personal narratives, "commUNITY" investigates the notion of cultural and geographic communities and explores individual identity by deconstructing social, racial, and cultural constructs.
The traveling exhibit will also be displayed July 2010 in the Walnut and Elm Galleries of the West Lafayette Public Library, and April-June, 2011 at the Indianapolis Art Center. Please see the YouTube video for a sneak peek. Asiance: Connecting Asian American Women to the World article.
