Online lecture. To celebrate the Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, the Renwen Society presents a lecture on May 14 on American writers of Chinese descent by UCLA Professor King-Kok Cheung, a renowned scholar of English and Asian American Studies. These writers grapple with issues of gender, racial, national and generational stereotypes within the tenuous matrix of transpacific relations. Professor Cheung will discuss 27 writers in nine clusters to show how they have preserved history and created worlds of imagination beyond the borders of nations.
