Statement on Anti-Asian Violence

Supporting Asians and Asian Americans during this Time of Increased Bias

A Statement from ALC Leadership

Last week’s tragic shootings in Atlanta that led to the killing of eight people, including six Asian women, have brought renewed attention to the significant increase in incidents of bias against Asians and Asian Americans over the last many months. Even before the shootings, major news outlets such as the New York Times and Washington Post have reported on this disturbing trend, and some academic organizations have responded with statements, including one from the Association for Asian Studies and one released by the Atlanta-based American Academy of Religion just the day before the shootings.

In the spirit of the Chancellor’s recent call to “Take Care,” the tragic incident in Atlanta can serve as a reminder of how important it is to support each other during these times. We urge us all to be vigilant about bias toward Asians and Asian Americans, to intervene when possible, and to report incidents when they occur. Likewise, if you experience a bias incident, large or small, we encourage you to reach out for support to our broader ALC community, but especially to the ALC leadership. Please remember also the support provided on campus through resources dedicated to the APIDA community.  We aspire to create a world where such incidents remain only as memories, but in the meantime, as we work toward such a goal, let us be confident in our individual and collective resilience and our capacity to overcome the forces in our culture that promote hate.

Professor John Dunne, Department Chair
Professor Junko Mori, Director of Graduate Studies
Professor Charo D'Etcheverry, Director of Undergraduate Studies

[This statement is based on a message distributed to the ALC community on March 17]

Undergraduate News & Events
Chinese House is a Language Immersion House within the International Learning Community (ILC), located in Adams Residence Hall. Comprised of mostly single rooms, Adams is a great option for students wishing to have their own space but also be a part of a tight-knit community.

A graduate student, who is a native speaker of the language, works with residents of the floor to assist with language skills and programming. Residents in language houses expand their listening, speaking and writing skills during informal weekly dinners, attending tutoring hours, and attending programs both on campus and in the residence hall.

The language programs offer a living experience ideal for students studying foreign languages, interested in world affairs, in exchange programs, and who are planning to study abroad, returning from studying abroad, or are unable to go abroad during their college careers. Unlike most apartments that require a contract for an academic year, the language houses offer contract release for students who study abroad. 

Chinese language learners of all levels and native speakers are all welcomed!

Dr. Sim will discuss his book, Postcolonial Hangups in Southeast Asian Cinema: Poetics of Space, Sound, and Stability (Amsterdam UP, 2020), an interdisciplinary journey through the cartographic cinema of Singapore, Yasmin Ahmad’s aural stagings of Malaysian soundscapes, and the recursive comfort of generic stability in Indonesian films after Reformasi.
