Asian American Studies

The reading group aims to accomplish three tasks. First, by reading recent works in Asian American Studies, the reading group advances discussion and reflection on the field among Princeton graduate students and faculty. Second, by bringing in established academics in the field, the reading group connects scholars to our growing number of graduate affiliates, while creating opportunities to workshop ideas, offer critical feedback, and stimulate discussion. Third, by providing a welcome space with time for informal discussion, the reading group provides opportunities for graduate students to discuss their work, connect with other graduate affiliates and faculty members, and build an
intellectual community.

Given the interdisciplinary nature of Asian American Studies, the group invites participants from a range of different disciplinary backgrounds and endeavors to provide accessible and thought-provoking readings open to all.

We plan to meet monthly throughout the fall and the spring semesters of AY 2023–24.
