The talk explores the relationship between race, masculinity, and class as South Asian American men play through their identities through South Asian American-only, Asian American-only, and multi-racial sporting circuits. This talk comes from Dr. Thangaraj’s book Desi Hoop Dreams: Pickup Basketball and the Making of Asian American Masculinity (NYU Press, 2015).
