The Third Symposium on Asians in the Americas focuses on Asians in the Americas from multidisciplinary perspectives such as history, anthropology, sociology, religion, art, education, literature, film, music, and popular culture. To date, scholarship in Asian American Studies has focused on East Asians--more so than South, Southeast, Central, and Western Asians--in North America. This symposium especially encourages new perspectives and comparative and connective approaches that can bring research on Asians in the United States, Canada, Latin America, and the Caribbean into dialogue.
