Participant Elly Smith’s Reflections and Jen Hayashida’s CAAM Blog Posting

One of the seminar participants, Elly Smith, authored a short piece on the Center for Asian American Media (CAAM) blog. In the post, Elly describes a bit about her background and personal relationship to the seminar material, why she decided to attend the seminar, and some thoughts about teaching Asian American literature and film in her classroom.

It is so important for our students not only see themselves represented in the texts they read, but also to have the chance to learn about the experiences and viewpoints of others.

Be sure to check out her full post on the CAAM website, as well as an introduction to the seminar written by co-director Jennifer Hayashida.
