PNR EVENT: The Transformation of the Asian American Vote: A Discussion with Prof. Catherine Liu – Monday, February 25th, 6:30-8:00 p.m.

Join DAUK Policy Network and Resolutions (PNR) for a talk hosted by the PNR identities group on the Asian American electorate: The Transformation of the Asian American Vote: A Discussion with Catherine Liu.

Professor of Film and Media Studies at UC Irvine by day and a progressive political activist by night, Catherine will lead a discussion with DAUK members about this increasingly vocal and politically active cross-section of the American electorate.

Prof. Liu has analyzed the shift in the Asian American vote from the Republican Party during the Reagan era to the Democratic Party of the 2000s. She examines this change that defied stereotypes from different perspectives, focusing especially on how Asian American economic and class interests are intertwined with recent immigrant experiences. She offers some concrete numbers about Asian American youth and highlights how the group’s salient features and interests could reshape American progressivism.
