Call for submission on Asian faculty, staff, and student experience during the pandemic

April 10 All day

Call for submission on Asian faculty, staff, and student experience during the pandemic 1

Dear Asian faculty, staff, and students at City Tech,

Hope you are well and staying safe. As you may know, I’m the editor for City Tech Writer, the journal of outstanding writing at City Tech. I wanted to follow up with the call for Asian faculty and students to submit audio, video, and/or written text from faculty, staff, AND students who would like to discuss their experiences during the pandemic. I’ve created an ad previewing what the project would look/feel like here, featuring a powerful narration from a student: https://youtu.be/gv_xzpzIg1Q

Narrating our experiences can be a powerful way to process trauma from hate-related incidents, or simply to just inform the broader public/administration about the added stresses that have attended the rise in violence against AAPI. Contributions will be compiled into a short documentary that will be included in this year’s issue of CTW. The documentary will be presented as part of a virtual event in early May, after the issue’s publication, linked to AAPI Heritage Month.

Those submitting have the option of either identifying yourself or remaining anonymous in the video. You can see further guidelines + submit here: https://forms.gle/yWsyHnebf1pyNFj46

I know everyone’s doing a LOT, so please only participate if you have the time and want to! If you are interested, it would be great if you could provide your testimony by April 10 (please note extended deadline)_. Also, if you can, it would be great if you could forward this message to Asian students whom you think might be interested in participating.

Due to space lengths, I will have to prioritize the first 10-15 testimonials that I receive. Beyond that I may not be able to include your testimonial in the mini-documentary; however, I will try to include a written version (or at least an excerpt) in a supplementary page of this year’s CTW.

Thank you for speaking up about an issue that affects us all.

Best,

Prof. Lucas Kwong
