“Asian-Americans have long occupied a strange space in American culture and society, of both invisibility and conditional acceptance. They are either erased in the Black and white binary of the nation’s racial politics or deployed as a convenient cudgel against other racial and ethnic groups by conservative pundits, who point to their supposed success as an indicator of American fairness.” -Sam Hyun, Class of 2014

Professor Rosita Scerbo from the Department of World Languages and Cultures and the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program, Professor Pamela Runestad from Global Health Studies, Career Counselor Autumn Parker, and Professor Dara Coleby Delgado from Philosophy and Religious Studies and Black Studies will facilitate a conversation with Allegheny students who are troubled by the Atlanta shooting. Using their expertise on women’s studies, intersectional feminism, violence and health, race, and religion, they hope to guide students to look at it from a critical point of view and thus make sense of it. It is open to the Allegheny community in person and on Zoom, and to Meadville local community members on Zoom only. Here is the link. Time: 6 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 8, in Ford Chapel. This event is supported by A5 Community & Alliances, the IDEA Center, the Department of World Languages and Cultures, the International Education Office, Asian and Asian American Association, the International Club, Chinese-American Friendship Society, and South Asian Student Society. Students, particularly remote international students, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to Professor Xiaoling Shi at
