This Moment in America II
Recognizing how recent violent attacks on Asian and Asian American communities, including the horrific shootings in Atlanta, have deeply affected members of our Vanderbilt community, the panel will explore the history of the Asian and Asian American experience in the U.S. and the impact that the rise of violence, xenophobia and anti-Asian sentiment since the beginning of the pandemic have had on these communities.

The discussion will be moderated by Dr. André L. Churchwell, vice chancellor for equity, diversity and inclusion and chief diversity officer for Vanderbilt University and Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Panelists will include:
Ben Tran, associate professor of Asian Studies and English
Cayla Leung, doctoral intern in psychology at the University Counseling Center
Iris Kim, undergraduate student and founder of the Asian American Studies Initiative (VAASI)
Thao Le, M.D./Ph.D. student in molecular physiology and biophysics, 2019-20 student life liaison of the Graduate Student Council
Abhi Nathan, undergraduate student and president of the South Asian Cultural Exchange
