Event Description:

This event will explore the social and psychic lives of Asian American students and patients that my co-author (Shinhee Han) and I have encountered over the course of twenty years in the classroom and the clinic. The overall objective of the course is to examine the specific social and psychic issues afflicting Asian Americans from Generation X to Generation Y, what my Shinhee Han and I describe as “racial melancholia” and “racial dissociation.” In particular, we will pay special attention not only to how Asian Americans are racialized precisely as having no race but also to the fact that racism against Asian Americans often occurs without anyone noticing, including Asian Americans themselves.








Learning Objectives:


At the end of this event participants will be able to:

  1. Describe a number of critical approaches to psychoanalysis, race, and Asian Americans

  2. Describe the history of the (Asian American) subject in relation to the subject of (Asian American) history—in other words, to understand how psychoanalysis and law frame race relations.

  3. Describe some of the social and psychic histories and dynamics of model minorities, transnational adoptees, parachute kids, suicide, and coming out in a colorblind age
