University of Maryland, College Park, Hyphen's coming to you next Tuesday as part of our college tour!
Hyphen has partnered up with I.W. Group and McDonald’s in an effort to inform and empower campuses with its unique perspective on Asian American arts, culture and politics. With style, of course. Next Tuesday, I will be heading out to UMD (again) to mingle with the students. Can't believe it has been a year since I last saw you, but it's about time that I get my Pot Belly fill again.
Here's my tentative schedule:
April 12, 2011
12:00-2:00 PM: Lunch bag session, open to all students
3:30-4:45 PM: Guest Speaker in Gem Daus’ class, Asian American Health. Discussion on Asian Americans and dieting.
TBD: Dinner with AAST staff & faculty
April 13, 2011
12:00-1:15 PM: Guest Speaker in Kozue Tsunoda’s class, Education and Counseling Issues. The topic(s) of discussion are currently being finalized.
TBD: Meeting with AAST staff to discuss the possibilities of future collaboration between AAST and Hyphen magazine.
3:30-4:45 PM: Guest Speaker in Dr. Shinagawa’s class, Asian Americans in DC. General discussion about experiences as publisher of Hyphen.
I will update as the details get more finalized. I imagine that I'll be hanging out at the Asian American Studies office quite a lot so please stop by and say hi.
Now the important part: A contest!
This is specifically for the UMD students that I'll be seeing this coming Tuesday & Wednesday: Tell us what makes you Hyphen.
Let us know by submitting a comment. The best response will win a $50 McDonald's Arch Card and a fancy sweatshirt. If your response is not picked, don't fret. We'll have little giveaways waiting for you when we see you.
Poems, pictures, and any other creative responses are also welcome.
