    Lori Kido Lopez, author of Asian American Media Activism

    Co-sponsored by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU and the NYU Center for Multicultural Education and Programs, this panel brings together Asian American activists, scholars, and media practitioners to critically examine ways we negotiate popular media as spaces for activism and resistance, as well as spaces to negotiate concepts of ‘belonging.’ How might our media activism begin working beyond narrowly defined visions of border and diaspora to create stronger collaborative movements and build solidarity within and beyond our multiple communities?

    Ramesh Srinivasan, author of Whose Global Village?

    Ramesh Srinivasan will discuss his book Whose Global Village? at Skylight Books in Los Angeles. Whose Global Village? explores how new technologies often reinforce the inequalities of globalization because developers rarely take into account communities outside the Western world. By sharing stories of collaboration with Native Americans in California and New Mexico, revolutionaries in Egypt, and villages in rural India, Srinivasan urge us to re-imagine social media, the Internet, and even mobile phones from the perspective of these diverse cultures.
