SUPER ASIAN AMERICA!

Join Gene Yang (New Super-Man), Keith Chow (Nerds of Color), Sarah Kuhn (Heroine Complex), Patrick Epino (Awesome Asian Bad Guys) and Christine Dinh (comics branding professional) in discussing the ever-evolving state of Asian Americans in media. Moderated by Racebending.com.

July 24, 2016         3:00-4:00pm         Room 29AB

As with last year’s panel, we’ll tackle everything from casting controversies (Dr. Strange, Ghost in the Shell) to fan campaigns (#StarringJohnCho, #WhiteWashedOut) to the nuts and bolts of working as an Asian American in the nerd culture industry.
