ETHNIC STUDIES AT HARVARD: A CALL FOR SUPPORT

Posted in

As of 2010-11, Harvard undergrads will be able to choose Ethnic Studies as a secondary field (i.e. a minor). But the new program is already active, due in large part to powerful advocacy by Asian-American students and alumni. Students have enrolled this year in interdisciplinary courses in Ethnic Studies, including classes taught by two visiting professors in Asian-American studies, Denise Khor and Hua Hsu. Their positions were funded by alumni.
