Asia Week 2017: Heidi Kim, “Asians and Asian Americans at Carolina”
December 20, 2016 @ 12:20 pm - February 20, 2017 @ 1:20 pm
Since the first student from Japan set foot on campus in 1893, Asians and Asian Americans have become an integral part of this university. Join the Carolina Asia Center for a lecture by Heidi Kim, an associate professor of English and comparative literature, who will provide an introduction to this rich history and the unveiling of a week-long exhibit at Wilson Library.
Lunch will be served and the exhibit will be on display beginning at 12 p.m. The event will begin with an overview of the Asia Week program by Thupten Norbu, followed by welcome remarks by Morgan Pitelka, the lecture by Kim and a Q&A session with Pitelka and Kim. This event kicks off Asia Week 2017, organized by the Carolina Asia Center.
