Asian-Indigenous Refugee Relationalities

November 4, 2022
4-5:30 PM PST

The Association of Asian American Studies’ Asian Settler Colonialism Caucus is a space that brings organizers and scholars together to discuss Asian-Indigenous relations and potential solidarities across various occupied sites. To encourage further conversation and education, the caucus is organizing an inter-university speaker series during the 2022-2034 academic year.

As the second event in the speaker series, this panel focuses on Asian and Pacific Islander refugees and how they navigate U.S. militarization and the global impacts of settler colonialism. Featuring Evyn Le Espiritu Gandhi (UCLA), Olivia Quintanilla (Miracosta College), and Aree Worawongwasu (UH Manoa), the panel hopes to further conversation between Indigenous refugee and Asian refugee communities that may have been similarly impacted by the U.S. empire. The panel will feature brief presentations from each panelist, followed by an audience Q&A.
