Bringing Community, Culture, and Scholarship Together
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Antony Wong – firstname.lastname@example.org
New York, NY, February 2015 ﹘ The Asian American/Asian Studies Research Institute (AAARI) of The City University of New York (CUNY), announces the launching of CUNY FORUM, Volume II, Fall 2014– Winter 2015. The journal provides a platform for Asian American and Asian Studies through comparative scholarship, art, and literature.
AAARI's second issue of CUNY FORUM includes a mixture of Nobel Prize recipients together with notable Asian Pacific scholars, journalists and public artists including individuals connected with Bangladesh, South Africa, Vietnam, Cambodia, Korea, Nepal, Taiwan, Japan, and the Philippines.
The goal of the FORUM is to bring intellectual and cultural communities together in a New York commons that takes readers well beyond typecasting Asian Americans as merely another American "minority brand." or as “the newest kid on the block,” and to link their experience and history with broader trends in scholarship, communications, media, and literature.
The 158 page journal features four sections:
- Asian Pacific American Studies; 2. Global Thinking and East-West Philosophy; 3. Global Voices: Asia, Africa and the Americas; and 4. Latitudes / Word & Image.
CUNY FORUM Volumes I and II are available for purchase online at a limited time only special sale price of $10 per issue (plus $3 S&H): URL: www.aaari.info/cunyforum
