Asian American Studies: Student Projects

Main content start

Students who have taken courses in Asian American Studies have produced resources as part of their final projects.  Each final project encompasses their accumulated knowledge gained in Asian American Studies coupled with their personal lives and everyday experiences.  Below are a few recent projects produced by students:

Seeds of Youth: Asian Americans are not a single story or a monolithic group in the COVID-19 pandemic.  It's important to see beyond the surface and to see the depth and humanity each person holds. These dynamic and multidimensional stories start in childhood and continue to influence each individual's lives, each in a unique and important way.  Our project is an effort to document the stories of Asian American immigrants during the COVID-19 pandemic and the racial justice protests of the year 2020.  We concentrate on the formative stages of our narrators' lives, particularly their childhood experiences, to examine how early exposure to social structures of race, class, culture, and gender shape their interactions and encounters with the events of this year.  Through this interactive, multi-media website, we hope to illuminate the weight that one's early years in life can carry, and how the past can manifest itself in the present in many salient forms.
