Not Quite: Asian Americans and the "Other" in the Era of the Pandemic and the Uprising
In honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, join Dr. Ada Cheng for her presentation Not Quite: Asian Americans and the "Other" in the Era of the Pandemic and the Uprising. In this performance, Dr. Cheng explores several major themes: the meanings of home(land), racial profiling and the image of the perpetual foreigner, and anti-Asian racism under the pandemic.

Dr. Cheng is a professor-turned-storyteller, solo performer, and storytelling show producer. She was a tenured professor in sociology at DePaul University from 2001-2016 when she resigned to pursue storytelling and performance full time.
