South Asian American Art, Activism and Cross-Racial Politics

Tuesday, January 29, 2019 - 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm
Okada Lounge

This talk explores how contemporary South Asian American activists are using art to challenge anti-black racism and, instead, advocate for building cross-racial solidarity among communities of color in the U.S.

Anantha Sudhakar is an Assistant Professor of Asian American Studies at San Francisco State University, where she teaches courses on Asian American literature and South Asian American history and culture. Her research explores the relationship among contemporary South Asian American cultural production, social justice and community formation and has been published in venues such as the Asian American Literary Review, Small Axe and Scholar & Feminist Online. In addition to her research and teaching, Sudhakar has served as a staff and board member of several national and local community organizations, including: The Asian American Writers’ Workshop, the South Asian Women’s Creative Collective, Bay Area Solidarity Summer and, currently, The South Asian American Digital Archive (SAADA).
