Hi all!

The Women of Color Resource Center will be hosting a Brown Bag event this month.

Sunaina Maira, currently an associate professor of Asian American Studies at UC Davis, will be introducing her new book, Missing: Youth, Citizenship, and Empire after 9/11.

Maira's teaching and research interests are youth, popular culture, transnationalism, South Asian immigrant communities, and U.S. empire. She has worked with various community and immigrant organizations in the Boston area such as Youth Solidarity Summer, a program for young activists of South Asian descent, which she co-founded, and South Asian Committee of Human Rights (SACH), which focused on post-9/11 civil and immigrant rights issues in the Boston Area. She has also worked with groups here in the Bay Area.

Maira also authored Desis in the House: Indian American Youth Culture in New York City, and has edited other works.

Please join us at the WCRC office on November 18 from 12:30-2PM! Books will likely be available for purchase.

If there are any further questions, please direct them to Anisha Desai -adesai [at] coloredgirls.org.
