RSVP HERE!

This July, the Asian American Writers’ Workshop brings together writers who contributed to #WeToo, a collection of essays, poems, creative nonfiction, and experimental works, published by the Journal of Asian American Studies and AAWW’s The Margins in February. Edited by erin Khuê Ninh and Shireen Roshanravan, the #WeToo reader served as the first collection to provide language and theory for lived-experiences of sexual violence in what is usually dismissed as privileged, unafflicted model-minority life. To answer questions of the socialization of rape culture, and how racialization plays a role, this event will bring in conversation Thaomi Michelle Dinh, Bryan Dan Trinh, Mashuq Mushtaq Deen, Seo-Young Chu, Margaret Rhee, and more.

Please keep in mind that this event will discuss material related to sexual violence and rape culture.
