STEFFI SAN BUENAVENTURA
In particular, the panel discussion will center on Chinese, Filipino, and Korean Americans. Immigrants and their descendants from all three groups keenly felt the effects of the war not only in their own lives, but also because the war has such profound consequences for their ancestral homelands.
The Athenaeum is fortunate to have a panel of scholars whose expertise includes the domestic and international dimentions of the war experience for the groups mentioned. Professor Gordon Chang, Stanford University, is a leading diplomatic and Asian American historian whose work includes Sino-U.S. relations. Professor Wayne Patterson, St. Norbert's College (Wisconsin), is a scholar of Korean history and international relations and has published on Korean migration to Hawaii. Professor Steffi San Buenaventura, University of California, Riverside, is an expert on Filipino America and her work has examined its transnational nature. The panel commentator is professor Yuji Ichioka, UCLA, who has published widely on Japanese migration to the United States.
This panel discussion is cosponsored by the Gould Center for Humanistic Studies as part of the series, "The State of Asian America: Identity, Politics, and Culture," and by the Keck Center for International and Strategic Studies.
