AAACC, co-founded by Kelly Nguyen, wins WCC Award

The Asian and Asian American Classical Caucus (AAACC), co-founded by Classics PhD candidate Kelly Nguyen, wins prestigious 2021 WCC  Professional Equity Award.  Each year this award is given by the Women’s Classical Caucus (WCC), an affiliate of the Society for Classical Studies (SCS), to “an institution that has taken measures to improve equality and diversity in our field, and whose culture is a model for other institutions.”  The SCS interviewed Kelly Nguyen and other AAACC officers about the organization, their programming, and ongoing challenges due to the pandemic.

Founded in 2019, the AAACC is a professional organization that encourages Asian and Asian American scholars in the field of classical antiquity to “explores issues of classical reception in Asian and Asian American culture” and “bring together the vibrant community of Asian and Asian American classicists”.

Congratulations to the AAACC for their well-deserved achievement!
