PAC x Universiteit Leiden: ‘Asian(s)’ in the Netherlands | Seminar
april 21 @ 19:00 - 21:00
Reports on discrimination against cultural, religious or ethnic groups in the Netherlands often exclude anti-Asian racism, even though reported cases of anti-Asian racism have increased significantly, especially since the corona pandemic. How is ‘Asian’ defined in media and public discourse? What is the impact of the absence of Asians as a category in research and discussions of racism?
In this panel, Hui-Hui Pan (Pan Asian Collective) and Jasmijn Rana (Leiden University) explore these questions, with the goal to foster a discussion which includes Asians in research and discussions of racism.
This will include a presentation of an exploratory research on how and to what extent ‘Asians’ are represented in Dutch media. Hui-Hui Pan will lay out the first results and challenges in research design when, if and how to include ‘Asians’ into representation research.
Guests are Amy Molin (Asian Raisins), Garjan Sterk (Radboud University), Jasmijn Rana (Leiden University), Aya Ezawa (Leiden University), Hui-Hui Pan (PAC), and more.
Moderation by Ardi Bouwers (China Circle)
