Today I had the great pleasure of being on a panel with Dr. Walter Rucker, “Gold Coast Diasporas: Identity, Culture, and Power” and Dr. Bayo Holsey, “Tyranny of Freedom: Race, Power, and the Fictions of Late Capitalism.” I shared my manuscript in progress, Migrant Crossings: Unsettling Witnessing of Asian and Latinas/os in the United States. Powerful work was shared during our panel discussion titled, “Crossings.” This event was hosted by the Center for Race and Ethnicity as the 9th Faculty Forum on Race and Ethnicity. Dr. Ann Fabian offered great questions and contextualization for our diverse and intersecting works.
Our panel was followed by discussions on “American Inequalities” and panel presentations from Dr. Lisa L. Miller, Dr. Lauren Krivo, and Dr. Dweston Haywood; a discussion facilitated by Dr. Naa Oyo Kwate.
Thank you Mia Kissil for organizing the event.

SPRING 2015 GRADUATE COURSE OFFERING
Department of Women’s and Gender Studies
MARY K. TRIGG
ANNIE ISABEL FUKUSHIMA
Tuesdays 2, 3
10:55 to 1:55 Ruth Dill Johnson Crockett Bldg. 011
Feminist Pedagogies encompass epistemology, theory and practice surrounding feminist teaching and learning. Feminist pedagogies develop an understanding about knowledge production surrounding gender, sexuality, race, class, and nation. In this graduate course, students will grapple with model feminist pedagogies in the classroom and the challenges instructors and professors navigate when discussing “difficult matters.” This class will engage with issues of power and authority, care, community in the classroom, as well as performance, resistance, difference, and dangerous memories. Our course will also include an applied aspect and will provide a platform for graduate students to receive peer and faculty feedback on feminist teaching with regards to facilitating class, structuring a syllabus, and teaching portfolios. This course is highly recommended for students who have teaching experience or who are teaching during spring semester 2015.
I am very excited about the international symposium, international webinar, film screenings, and digital display I am organizing with my colleagues at Rutgers (Kayo Denda and Suzy Kim).
I forgot how much fun I have designing/laying out and coordinating events.
I have created the website: http://rethinkingasiapivot.com/
I designed the poster using Kakyoung Lee’s work (courtesy of the artist and RYAN LEE Gallery)
And I also designed the postcards
