Activism, Identity and Service: The Influence of the Asian American Movement on the Educational Experiences of College Students
Nguyen, Thai-Huy; Gasman, Marybeth
History of Education, v44 n3 p339-354 2015
This article emphasises two major themes that address the influence of the Asian American Movement: (1) encouraging students to broaden the discourse on race and ethnic relations by redefining categories and challenging prevalent assumptions; (2) an increased tolerance and frequency in course offerings that examine and centralise the histories, literature and political underpinnings of Asian Americans and ethnic (i.e. Japanese) specific communities, which has equipped students to engage in discourse and community action. Countering dominant narratives through unification and education is the means by which Asian American students fought for representation and fair treatment.
