BREAKING THE BAMBOO CEILING: THE CONTINUED EVOLUTION OF ASIANS IN FILM, TV, AND GAMING
Despite being the largest ethnic group in the world, Asian characters still fall victim to stereotypes, tropes, and marginalization. Too often the diversity of our cultures, voices, and nationalities are lumped under a broad Asian umbrella. This year we will discuss costuming, literature, and comics (both characters and writers) as well as examining the status of AAPI representation in movies, TV, and games. Are there ways that we can effect better inclusion?
Location: TCC L3 – Room 1
Speakers: Meris Mullaley, JC Lau, Kristine Hassell, Tony Loiseleur, Sonja Marcus
