presenting at U.Md. this Thursday
I’ve been gracious invited by Dr. Larry Shinagawa to speak to his Introduction to Asian American Studies class this Thursday 11/16, based on the Asian American Youth Ministry book I had edited and published. I commend his openness to broaden the exposure of his class to a religious aspect of the Asian American community. I’ll be speaking to about 45 students in a secular college context; I plan to share highlights from the book along with my experiences & research of ethnic Asian churches.
Is there anything you can think of that I should include in my talk that would most help grow mutual understanding and develop common ground between Christian and non-Christian Asian Americans?
From the university class schedule:
The aggregate experience of Asian Pacific Americans, from developments in the countries of origin to their contemporary issues. The histories of Asian Pacific American groups as well as culture, politics, the media, and stereotypes, viewed from an interdisciplinary perspective.
