The Eleventh Annual NYCAASC: REALITIES
2016 was an extremely divisive year - it revealed how little we truly know of our neighbors, even in New York City.
Our city is segregated by our various identities, like race and class. Although we share a single city border, we hardly know our neighbors beyond appearances and preconceived notions.
This year’s conference will explore the theme of REALITIES -- By delving into the experiences, histories, and communities of our families and neighbors, NYCAASC 2017 aims to identify and question the power structures that shape our realities.
What determines our realities?
Which realities are considered “authentic”?
And most importantly, whose realities become history?
Through the power of communal storytelling, REALITIES invites attendees to challenge our perceived realities of one another and to mobilize our communities beyond borders.
NYCAASC wouldn't be where it is today without the continued support of the Asian/Pacific Islander American community!
Special thanks to our sponsors for making NYCAASC 2017: REALITIES possible!

The Asian/Pacific/American Institute at New York University was established in 1996 in response to student interest combined with the University’s commitment to global excellence. It provides a space in which research and public programs, with a focus on community and intercultural studies, are made accessible to faculty, students, and the New York community within a broad, rigorous international and comparative framework.
The A/P/A Institute at NYU produces programming, publications, exhibitions, new research, and a long-running artist-in-residence program, attracting leading academics and practitioners. The Institute's multiple archival collection initiatives have also continued to build a foundation of, and preservation and access to, important historical documents and previously overlooked materials for present and future researchers and students.
Located in Greenwich Village, the Institute serves the community highlighting research, cultural production, and scholarship on contemporary issues facing Asian/Pacific American communities, and provides a nexus for scholars, community leaders, and artists who are working on advancing scholarship in the field and bringing theory into practice.
