Student/Faculty Member Present Papers at Meeting of Association for Asian American Studies

Assistant Professor of English Aline Lo and Nia Shuler ’18 presented papers at the annual meeting of the Association for Asian American Studies in Miami. Both their presentations were on the work accomplished last summer through their participation in Allegheny’s grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation in support of collaborative undergraduate research in the humanities. Professor Lo’s chapter article “Reel Women: Diasporic Cinema and Female Collectivity in Abel Vang’s Nyab Siab Zoo” was published in an edited collection called Claiming Place: On the Agency of Hmong Women.
