The South Asian Studies program collaborated with the Center for the Study of Race and Ethnicity in the Americas (CSREA) this past weekend to present a symposium on race in the Global Asias. The sessions drew attention to issues of race in Asian Studies, and brought together four prominent scholars to speculate on the intersection of their work in the transcolonial border zones of the Asias to lay the foundation for future conversations in history, ethnic studies, performance studies, and social movements.
