Do you want to be a part of history?
Sign up for AAS 379
This conference course offers you the opportunity to meet and work with Asian American community and business leaders in the central Texas area while helping develop historical records about this under-documented group. Working with the Austin History Center (AHC), you will interview Asian Americans who have played significant roles in the history, culture, and economy of Texas. These oral histories will be transcribed and archived in the AHC for future researchers.
This course can be taken for three units of credit for which you will conduct 1 to 2 oral interview(s) and write a 5-6 page report concerning your findings. Esther Chung, a Neighborhood Liaison at AHC, will train and supervise you in interview, transcription, and preservation techniques.
To learn more about this opportunity, contact Dr. Madeline Hsu, Director of the Center for Asian American Studies (CAAS), at firstname.lastname@example.org, 232-9469, or visit CAAS at GRG220.
