American Ethnic Studies

Associate Professor, Shireen Roshanravan co-edits #WeToo Reader - special issue of the Journal of Asian American Studies. 
 #WeToo is a collection of essays, poems, creative nonfiction, and experimental works published both in the Journal of Asian American Studies and in part here on The Margins. Together, this body of work provides language and theory for lived experiences of sexual violence in what is usually dismissed as privileged, unafflicted model-minority life. The #WeToo collection is edited by erin Khuê Ninh and Shireen Roshanravan. Accompanying the series on The Margins is artwork by Catalina Ouyang.  Some of the pieces in the journal are also published online with the Asian American Writers' Workshop digital magazine The Marginshttps://aaww.org/we-too-introduction-ninh-roshanravan/

K State's American Ethnic Studies is the only degree program of this kind in the state of Kansas. Within this era of major demographic transformation, we are seeing an increased demand for American ethnic studies programs. American Ethnic Studies courses prepare students to function productively in today's multicultural society. We  provide deep multidisciplinary insight into America's race relations, drawing from nearly every area of study: from all the social sciences, the humanities, the arts. Students learn how race and ethnic understandings have been shaped across history and why the subject of race is in the news headlines every day. We explore Native American, African American, Mexican/Latina/o American and Asian American historical and cultural dynamics. Employers seek college graduates with ethnic studies skills: the ability to productively harness ethnic differences; the capacity to work in multicultural teams; and respectful multicultural communication ability.
