Funny Asian Americans on YouTube

I’m really sad we didn’t have time to watch and discuss more web content — alas, there was just too much to cram into 13 classes. So here are some links to YouTube videos featuring funny Asian Americans. Please feel free to comment or share your fave videos!

On Margaret Cho and Asian American Stand-up Comedy

For the Last Day of Class

On Thursday, we’ll be watching and discussing clips of Margaret Cho’s stand-up and wrapping up our semester. Don’t forget to read the two assigned readings (PDFs posted under Schedule + Readings) and to bring your completed peer reviews. And of course feel free to bring a treat to share for our “party.”

And please don’t forget to fill out those online course and faculty evaluations!

Survey for MA and MS Ed Programs

From Professor Walkden, Director of Graduate Studies in English:

The Department of English is conducting a self-study in order to improve its programs, including its graduate programs. Gathering information from current students is vital to this goal. The department joins me in thanking you for taking 5-10 minutes to fill out this short survey. All responses are anonymous.

I know it’s close to the end of a long and busy semester, but the department is eager for your input. So please do take a moment to do this, ideally before Monday, May 19. If you have any questions about the survey, please don’t hesitate to be in touch.
