Restorative Justice 101: War, Genocide & Justice
Tue, April 30, 1:30pm - 2:30pm in Aztlan A&B, OC 3400
The ending of the Vietnam war on April 30, 1975, marks a historic time in America’s war memories. Vietnamese refugee experiences have been common post-war narratives, but hidden among the shadows of such stories are the experiences of Cambodian Americans at the hands of the Khmer Rouge. Join us for a presentation by SJEC intern, Amara Sengamphan, and Sociology professor, Dr. Thao Ha, on the decimation and post-war traumas of this often forgotten Southeast Asian community.
APIHM College Hours:
San Elijo Campus: Thursday, May 2 from 12:30pm - 1:30pm
Oceanside Campus: Thursday, May 9 from 12:30pm - 1:30pm
From Visibility to Stereotypes: Crazy Rich Asians Screening & Discussion
Tuesday, May 7, 2pm - 4:30pm in the Social Justice and Equity Center (OC 3445)
Come enjoy delicious food, a screening of the popular film Crazy Rich Asians, and a discussion that digs deeper into this hit movie: how groundbreaking is this level of visibility for an all-Asian cast? How does it challenges stereotypes, and how does it perpetuate them? How does the story of the film fit into the context of (post/neo)colonial relations between Singapore and China? Will Rachel and Nick find happiness together? We’ll eat, screen, and discuss these questions and more. All are welcome!
