How Do You Use Media In The Classroom?

As part of CAAM’s exploration of the future of Asian American media, we asked Prof. Kale Fajardo (Univ. of Minnesota), Prof. Allan Issac (Rutgers Univ.) and Prof. Martin Manalansan (Univ. of Illinois) their thoughts, methods and observations on using media in the classroom.

I think I’m Himalayan American…

CAAM’s own Sapana Sakya reflects on her Himalayan American identity and introduces the upcoming Himalayan Youth Summit, where youth will create videos telling their stories.

DIRECTIONS IN STORYTELLING: Jessica Hagedorn

To promote her new book, Jessica Hagedorn (author, playwright and musician) decided to create a short experimental film to promote and capture the feel of her new book Toxicology. CAAM stopped by her home in New York City to discuss her approach in making the film.
