On Monday, May 24, at 6 p.m., APIC (Asian and Pacific Islander Caucus of Dartmouth) in association with IDE (Office of Institutional Diversity & Equity at Dartmouth) will present a live Zoom Panel/Q&A on Asian/American experiences and underrepresentation in American theater, TV, and film, featuring Raymond J. Lee and Sagan (Diane) Chen '14, who will speak on their work in the performing arts and their thoughts about the well-documented underrepresentation of Asian/Americans in the performing arts, and moderated by Professor Eng-Beng Lim (Consortium of Studies in Race, Migration, and Sexuality). The webinar is free, and open to the general public, Dartmouth staff, faculty, and students. After the prepared remarks, audience members will be able to ask questions of the panelists. The event will be recorded to allow those who can't attend to view it later.
