The Ethnic Studies Department proudly announces the Third Multicultural Art and Library Display, organized by students taking courses in the Asian/Asian American Studies (AAAS) program at Laney College. The goal of the visual and mixed media presentation is to engage the campus community by showcasing course project work.
162 students have been diligently working in small groups over the last five weeks to design and develop their team projects.
The theme of the library display is “Asian Pacific American Untold Stories: What Don’t You Know? Why Don’t You Know it?” Student generated topics and research questions focus on current issues relevant to the Asian Pacific American experience today. They have been working collaboratively inside and outside the classroom, many of whom have been conducting interviews using social science research skills, doing outreach by contacting local community organizations and analyzing visual media in order to prepare and produce their educational, political, historical and cultural displays.
The Laney College AAAS Library Display will start on Monday, October 8th and wrap up on Monday, October 15, 2012. The library hours are: Monday-Thursday, 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM, and Friday 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM (closed on weekends). We invite you to visit the library, main floor, to browse, share and enjoy our multicultural art installation. Please help us celebrate the contributions of Asian Pacific Americans to the diversity and history of the United States.
