A public anthropology/visual ethnography speaker series
In Fall 2022, we held a series of conversations with junior scholars, artists, and activists about Asian and Black cultures and solidarities set around New York City.
In the spirit of collaborative ethnography, our conversations on Chinese diasporic foodways and “fusion” cuisine, Black people and Black culture in China, Asian street style, Afro Asian sound and dance cultures, and African American kung fu practices highlight the importance of localized, ethnographic approaches to research.
This series was co-organized by Harvard Anthropology PhD candidates Maya Singhal and Veronica Peterson. It was supported by the Harvard University Asia Center, the Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies, and the Department of Anthropology.
