Building Asian American Studies across the Community College Classroom

A one-year professional and curricular development program in Asian American studies for fifteen community college faculty members.

The Center for Ethnic Studies at the City University of New York’s Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC) proposes a 12-month program to expand the teaching of Asian American Studies in community college classrooms across humanities disciplines. This project will engage the local histories, cultures, and identities of diverse, new, and underrepresented Asian American communities in the New York City metropolitan area. The proposed project will begin with an 8-day Faculty Development Institute for participants to study and develop curricular materials for implementation in the classroom. The Institute will be followed by a monthly Colloquium in Asian American Studies (2016–2017) to highlight emergent interdisciplinary research, cultural production, and innovative pedagogy.
