Warm up for the proceedings by checking out our great new UIP titles along with a selection of backlist classics. Since you’re at the table, why not chat with the always personable Dawn Durante, Acquisitions Editor at UIP? That done, you can then get serious with what the Press is bringing to AAAS in 2016:
1) Join UIP authors Faye Caronan and Christine Kim for a book signing and meet-and-greet. It takes place from 6:15 to 7:30 PM on April 28 at the UIP table during the conference’s New Books Reception.
2) Read Faye Caronan‘s Legitimizing Empire: Filipino American and U.S. Puerto Rican Cultural Critique. This breakthrough study explores how colonial narratives complicate the mythology of U.S. exceptionalism. Caronan challenges the promises of “benevolent assimilation” of Puerto Rico and the Philippines within the American empire.
3) Read Christine Kim‘s The Minor Intimacies of Race: Asian Publics in North America. Nothing less than an original reconsideration of foundational concerns, this book delves into the ways cultural conversations minimize race’s relevance even as violent expressions and structural forms of racism continue to occur. Kim examines race, emotional states of intimacy, and social publics among Asian Canadians and Asian Americans.
4) Take a look at the latest issue of the Journal of American Ethnic Studies, the publishing home of many Asian American studies articles, including “A Part and Apart: Asian American and Immigration History,” by Erika Lee.
5) While you’re at the our booth take advantage of the conference discount of up to 40% off with free shipping.*
