Sorry, all spots have been filled! Thank you for your interest.
Thank you for visiting the official conference website for the East Coast Asian American Student Union’s 35th conference at Duke University. The conference is scheduled for Friday, February 24, 2012 to Sunday, February 26, 2012.
REDISCOVERY. Our central theme, rediscovery, reflects our belief that we must challenge ourselves to re-examine the meaning of Asian American, for ourselves and for our community. Rediscovery asks us to build a new framework with which to think about Asian Americans in the landscape of 21st century America. In doing so, our hope is that our programming provokes critical thought and analysis of the contemporary plight of Asian Americans.
RENAISSANCE. At its core, the notion of rebirth and reinvention epitomizes our notion of renaissance. From Asian American YouTube celebrities to rising stars in the political arena, Asian Americans are beginning to challenge conventional stereotypes that defined our past, locate our present, and write our future.
REVOLUTION. The Civil Rights Movement started with a dream, that things could be different, that change was possible. In this context, we need to ask ourselves what does an Asian American movement look like? What change are we fighting for? At the heart of revolution is the understanding that there could be a new reality, a better one, and that people together can unite to bring it about.
