My Take on Teaching Ethnic Studies
I teach Asian Americans Studies and comparative studies in race and ethnicity (aka Ethnic Studies). I love teaching Ethnic Studies.
I believe we all have so much to share based on what we have experienced and observed in life. Yet, it's rare to find spaces where we can explore how we make sense of all that--especially when it comes to race, ethnicity, and power.
I see my classes as moments in which we can uncover our own stories and develop our own perspectives on what's going on. From there, we can know what our commitments are and work towards what we think is good and right for our communities.
