Building a Career on Southeast Asia, as (Southeast) Asian, in the US
November 19, 2021 from 10AM to 11:30AM EST
Getting through graduate school and launching a career is challenging for anyone, especially when that path combines an area studies and disciplinary focus. What additional challenges does identity add—specifically, for students and faculty who identify as (or are identified as) Asian themselves, as they conduct research in and teach about Southeast Asia, and as they build careers in the US? While helpful for grad students and early-career scholars of Southeast Asia broadly, this panel will be especially germane for those who identify and/or present as Asian or Asian-American.
