When and Where is the Event?
The Harvard Half-Asian People’s Association is hosting its third annual conference on mixed-race politics and identity issues, “So…What Are You, Anyway?” (SWAYA) on the Harvard University campus. The event will feature an array of exciting guest lecturers who will speak on issues involving multiracial identity.
The conference will include lectures given by the Dean of Harvard College and other Harvard College professors, as well as student panels and discussion groups.
SWAYA will culminate in a special gala dinner in honor of the 2010 recipient of the Cultural Pioneer Award, celebrity mixed-race artist Jeff Chiba Stearns, director of the award-winning documentary “One Big Hapa Family”. An international spokesperson on mixed-race identity, Stearns’ short films exploring multiethnic issues have been screened in hundreds of film festivals around the world and have garnered over 33 awards.
Loving Day is proud to participate in this conference. Loving Day founder Ken Tanabe will be leading a discussion group entitled Multiethnic Community Collaboration and Growth (Discussion Block B, in Boylston 105).
