This post features books by ten Asian & Pacific Islander American authors, which are available at the library. Month-long celebrations like AAPI Heritage Month are important for amplifying marginalized voices, but it’s also necessary to speak out against anti-Asian discrimination and violence at all times. Reading helps us expand our horizons and become better allies – this list will give you plenty of material to get started.
The month of May is unearthing a plethora of complexity within the Fordham community. The pandemic is over a year old, vaccine research brings both promise and hesitancy, the days grow longer and warmer, and in the midst of all this we find ourselves celebrating Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Month.
We are pleased to share that the Fordham Museum has been featured in the April 2021 edition of Connections, published by the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities (AJCU). Written by Curator of University Art Jennifer Udell, Ph.D., the article explores a new student-curated exhibit, “Facing the Past: Reexamining the Modern History of Objects in the Fordham Museum of Greek, Etruscan, and Roman Art.”
