Q&A Speaker Series at Harvey Mudd College from the Claremont Colleges!

Upcoming guest speakers and topics below!
Q &A speaker series

As part of Asian American Studies 179C Queering Asian America course, at Harvey
Mudd College, we are fortunate to have a series of guest speakers to expand on
material investigated by the class course. We would like to share this opportunity to
engage with Queer Asian American activists, scholars, artists, and cultural producers
with the 5C community. The speakers will speak from their experience about the
historical struggles, artistic expression, community activism and contemporary issues of
the Queer, Lesbian, Gay Bisexual API community. The speakers series will be on
Fridays 1:15-2:15 in Linde Activities Center, upstairs in the Riggs room. Please enter
through the side door on the west side of the building.
