Brown Bag Discussion, Article Read – Fresh off the Boat?? Cultural Appropriation or Appropriate influence

Tuesday, April 12

Time: 12 p.m. — 1 p.m.

Location: Alumni Hall, Room 101

Join us as Dr. Tom Morgan, from the English Dept., leads a discussion on the influence of hip hop culture on Asian culture and whether or not the lines are blurred when understanding hip hop’s influence versus the belief of cultural appropriation. There will be an emphasis on an article that conceptualizes hip hop’s influence on Chinese youth culture and on the hit Television Program Fresh off the Boat, specifically the main character, Eddie Huang, and how he uses hip hop culture as a coping mechanism to adjust to American culture.

Part of the Asian and Pacific Heritage Programming Series.
