From the Asian American/Asian Research Institute (AAARI) at CUNY:
Friday Evening Lecture Series
Please join the Asian American / Asian Research Institute (AAARI) for a book talk on Incidental Racialization: Performative Assimilation in Law School, by Diana Pan, on Friday, April 20, 2018, from 6pm to 8pm, at 25 West 43rd Street, Room 1000, between 5th & 6th Avenues, Manhattan. This talk is free and open to the general public.
Despite the growing number of Asian American and Latino/a law students, many panethnic students still feel as if they do not belong in this elite microcosm, which reflects the racial inequalities in mainstream American society. While in law school, these students-often from immigrant families, and often the first to go to college-have to fight against racialized and gendered stereotypes. In her book Incidental Racialization, Diana Pan rigorously explores how systemic inequalities are produced and sustained in law schools, and examines their significance in the legal profession and broader U.S. society.
