(Not) Knowing Asia: Why Stereotypes Emerge and Persist

1:00 PM – 2:00 PM

Description

Lack of knowledge about Asia leads many people to "figure out" who Asian immigrants are based on popular culture imagery. Generated by mass media (especially Hollywood movies), these images give rise to stereotypes that negatively affect people of Asian heritage, erase their diversity, and perpetuate misunderstanding of other cultures. Join us for a critical conversation to learn interesting facts about Asia, and how you can help eliminate stereotypes and contribute to the sense of belonging of Asian Americans in our communities.

Presented by Professor Gergana Ivanova, interim director, Asian Studies, University of Cincinnati
