Thanks to my compulsive habit of googling any remotely Asian American sounding name affiliated with an education school, I got in touch with Joey Lee (whose great quote is featured in the previous entry) who is not only Asian, but does fascinating research that’s actually related to Asian Americans. For his dissertation, Joey designed two games entitled (I kid you not) FobOrNot (or A-Culture-Rate) and Flying Asian Stereotypes. The games helped Asian American undergrads better understand their own identities and also helped educate non-Asian Am students about stereotypes related to Asian Americans. Pretty darn cool, and always exciting to see Asian American faculty doing innovative work.
