The Doctor is Not In: Arts Interventions and the Micropolitics of Asian American Mental Health at AAAS Portland

  • Portland, Oregon

This roundtable looks to new frameworks for diagnosing Asian American unwellness and providing care. It will examine a number of public-facing arts-based Asian American mental health interventions scheduled to launch between fall 2016 and spring 2017, opening to a larger conversation about the potential meeting places of Asian American studies, the arts, and mental health.

Roundtable participants will include Cathy Linh Che, Executive Director of Kundiman, discussing Kundiman’s 2017 slate of public programming on literature and Asian American wellness and care.
