Queering Asian American Contemporary Art

In May 2017, Laura Kina and Jan Christian Bernabe published Queering Contemporary Asian American Art, a book that brings together Asian artists and scholars and asks us to question how we understand Contemporary Asian American art. We hear from Jan and Laura about what "queering" means and themes they found in the process of putting the book together.

Decolonizing Archaeology

There is a growing movement to shift the colonial narrative by razing monuments that symbolize white supremacy and the genocide of indigenous peoples in the United States.

In New York City, activists have demanded the removal of the Christopher Columbus statue at Columbus Circle and have pushed for the replacement of Columbus Day with Indigenous People's Day. At institutions of higher learning,
academics are defining what it means to decolonize the academy, research methods, and their field of research, in both theory and in practice.

We hear an excerpt of "Decolonizing Archaeology" by Pratt Institute of Art and Design professor Uzma Rizvi. The sound was taken as part of The Cooper Unionís
Intra-Disciplinary Seminar Public Lecture Series, curated by professors Leslie Hewitt and Omar Berrada.
