2019 Smithsonian Asian American Literature Festival

In 2019, the Smithsonian APA Center held its second biannual Asian American Literature Festival. As co-chair of the Circle for Asian American Literary Studies, I had the honor of participating in a series of public Literary Addresses and Responses about the state of Asian American literature and literary studies. 

We later collated our work into a portfolio, "Asian American Literature: The State of the Art," available on the Massachusetts Review Blog.
