This public dialogue on xenophobia/philia in the (Asian) American context, energized by some of the critical and creative voices from inside and outside the Ivory Tower, celebrates the beginning of a stimulating series of faculty seminars in Asian American Studies at the Asian American / Asian Research Institute. At this launch event, panelists will explore various embodiments of the “foreigner” question, the theme of the year 2010, focusing on its aesthetic, moral, and political harms, implications and future: how deep is its everydayness and randomness?

Panelists will offer their own unique perspectives on how they understand the term or conceptual pair, xenophobia/philia, and why this issue deserves more critical attention; followed by Q& A with the audience.


Series Organizer: Kyoo Lee, Assistant Professor of Philosophy at John Jay College, CUNY, and a Resident Mellon Fellow at CUNY Graduate Center.
