Legacies of Ethnic Studies since 1969
This picture truly reflects the legacies and diversity -- both intergenerational and regional -- of FANHS. It's from the July 4 panel, "Inspiration, Influence, and Intrigue: the Long Reach and Hidden Impacts of Filipino American Studies since 1969," at the 12th Biennial National Conference of the Filipino American National Historical Society (FANHS) in Anchorage, Alaska. Organized by Juanita Tamayo Lott, the panel included presentations by founders of Ethnic Studies -- Daniel Phillip Gonzales, Asian American Studies, College of Ethnic Studies, San Francisco State University and Juanita Tamayo Lott, Senior Statistician, U.S. Census Bureau, Washington, DC -- as well as a presentation by Gem Daus, the instructor of one of the newest Filipino American Studies courses at the University of Maryland, College Park.
After the inspiring presentations and lively discussion, generations of Filipino American studies instructors and students from throughout the USA posed for this historic photograph. Included are a number of leaders of Pin@y Educational Partnerships (PEP) www.pepsf.org of San Francisco State University who presented both their own workshop as well as a highly engaging plenary session at FANHS.
