Stanford University, Asian American Studies Program

6月 2005から会員


The Stanford motto, “The wind of freedom blows,” is an invitation to free and open inquiry in the pursuit of teaching and research. The freedom of scholarly inquiry granted to faculty and students at Stanford is our greatest privilege, using this privilege boldly is our objective. Asian American Studies provides an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the historical and current experiences of persons of Asian ancestry in the United States. Asian American Studies brings together courses that address the artistic, historical, humanistic, political, and social dimensions of Asian Americans and is an appropriate course of study for students interested in a variety of concerns related to Asian Americans, including artistic and cultural contributions, current social significance, historical experiences, immigration, intellectual, policy issues, relationships with other social groups, and the construction of “Asian America” as it addresses important theoretical and practical issues.

The Asian American Studies Program at Stanford mounts classes, directs research, and creates curricula and workshops for Asian American studies at Stanford; it also works in conjunction with the Asian American Activities Center to invite guest speakers, host alumni events, screen films and cultural events, and carry on mentoring and other advising activities.


Stanford University's Asian American Studies Program is delighted to contribute to the Nikkei Legacy Project in the following ways--we will publicize and to the extent possible facilitate access to the considerable research archives of the University; we will work with the Project on curricular content and formats that encourage and facilitate student research into areas of interest such as oral histories, archival work, and community outreach, all of which will benefit from students' access to the resources of Discover Nikkei; we will work with the project to have such scholarship and creative work made available on the website; and, finally, we will share Project information and publicity on Stanford and Bay Area events that may be of special interest to Discover Nikkei audiences, and in turn publicize project news on our own website via a link to Discover Nikkei.

We will also post projects and events on the Community Forum, and publicize as well to all Stanford students the opportunity to review books, movies, share research, conduct interviews, contribute discussion questions, and contribute articles for the Forum.
