Research Talk: I Wish I Didn't Have To: Asian Pacific Americans as Reluctant Revolutionaries

This is a research talk presented by Dr. Evelyn Rodriguez, visiting Associate Professor of Sociology from the University of San Francisco. 

This talk draws from an ongoing qualitative project which seeks to explore how brown American young adults - those sociologist Eileen O'Briend (2008) might say constitute today's US "racial middle" - understand US race, race relations, and politics in the 21st Century. It illuminates Asian Pacific American (APA) voices in particular, to examine how the complex ways APAs experience race create both obstacles and pathways to activism and other kinds of civic engagement.

Hosted by the Center for Asian American Studies (CAAS) and the Multicultural Engagement Center's Asian Desi Pacific Islander American Collective (ADPAC)
