UCI Main Page Message from the Director W elcome to the Department of Asian American Studies at UC Irvine. Asian American Studies was established as an interdisciplinary program at UCI in 1991. Our program has expanded tremendously over the past decade and we now have nine core faculty and ten affiliated faculty across campus. Our faculty belong to Humanities, Social Sciences, Social Ecology and Arts disciplines.
W e offer a graduate emphasis, and an undergraduate major and minor in Asian American Studies. Our program now offers more than thirty courses annually with an enrollment of over two thousand students. Strong student interest is demonstrated in large enrollments in courses such as Asian American Cultures, Asian American Women, Asian Immigrants and Refugees in Orange County, Vietnamese American Experience, Chinatowns in the United States, among others.
T he Asian American Studies Academic Theme House provides a community-oriented living space for undergraduates and is part of the Arroyo Vista Housing Complext at UCI. The residents of the Theme House plan activities and community projects related to Asian American issues. Another important source for the UCI Asian American Studies community is the Cross Cultural Center, which hosts speakers and events with a multicultural emphasis. In addition to the UCI Library's general collection of Asian American Studies books, videos and other materials, its Special Collection features the Sourtheast Asian Archive, which offers resources on the Vietnamese, Cambodian and Laotian communities in California and in the rest of the United States.

Wong, sophomore, Arts and sciences, and Bartels Action Research Fellow; Sunn ShelleyWong, associate professor and director, Asian American Studies Program
Task force created to look at issues confronting Cornell's Asian and Asian-American student communities
FOR RELEASE: Jan. 22, 2003 Contact: Jacquie Powers
Office: 607-255-5678
E-Mail: ITHACA, N.Y. Susan Murphy, Cornell University vice president for student and academic affairs, has announced that a task force has been formed to address issues confronting Cornell's Asian and Asian-American student community. Murphy said the task force was established in response to the need for a campuswide approach to address campus climate, services and program issues as they relate to Cornell's Asian and Asian-American community. She noted that students of Asian descent comprise the largest single community of color at Cornell, at 14 percent of the total student body, 16 percent of all undergraduates and 55 percent of all international students. Any improvement in the well-being for this community will likely improve the campus climate for the university at large, she said. Murphy explained that the term "Asian and Asian-American" encompasses a diverse array of groups and individuals, differing in such characteristics as ethnicity, generational status and socioeconomic background. At Cornell, she added, the Office of Minority Educational Affairs (OMEA) has identified at least 26 different Asian ethnic groups in its 2001-2002 survey of incoming first-year students. "Even though there are such important distinctions and differences among members of Cornell's Asian and Asian-American community, our students, faculty and staff have identified a number of common issues confronting them," Murphy said. "These include an apparently disproportionate number of suicides by students of Asian descent; bias-related incidents; survey results showing a higher level of dissatisfaction with certain aspects of their Cornell experience among Asian and Asian-American graduating seniors; a relative under-representation among university staff and faculty of persons of Asian descent; and under-utilization by this community of existing mental health resources on campus."

Because of the interdisciplinary nature of Asian American, relevant titles are often dispersed throughout the general collection depending upon subject matter. Use Socrates , Stanford's online catalog to to locate books and other materials. Use the library's print or electronic indexes to locate journal and newspaper articles and published papers. Socrates can tell you what library materials Stanford owns and where they are located, allowing you to search by author, title, call number, organization, or subject.

    Sciences and pseudo-sciences of the Lunar New Year
    By Thinh Tran, contributing science writer
    The Lunar New Year as the celebration of a new life
    To know why the Lunar New Year is so important we have to talk a little bit about the underlying philosophy that has dominated east Asia for several thousand years, namely the philosophy of Universal Oneness. This philosophy, interestingly, is highly compatible with modern science because it implies that everything in the universe obeys the same set of laws. The method, then, is to observe the manifestations of these laws through Nature, try to understand them, and apply them to our own lives.
    In summary, the Lunar New Year symbolizes birth, rebirth, resurrection, revival; in other words, a grand new beginning, with the greatest hope of all hopes, the greatest potential of all potentials. It is only fitting that the Lunar New Year is celebrated in a big big way.
    The Lunar New Year and Chinese Astrology
    The brand of fortune telling most popular in countries that celebrate the Lunar New Year is Chinese astrology. Because of the intimate connection between the Lunar New Year and fortune telling, it is not an exaggeration to say that one can never appreciate the cultural significance of the Lunar New Year unless one understands the philosophy behind Chinese astrology.
    The significance of the Chinese 12-animal zodiac
    Although it may be correct to say that Chinese astrology is not a science, most people who condemn Chinese astrology forget that it is only one application of a philosophical system, which may be scientific. The philosophical system that governs Chinese astrology is based on two theories: Yin-Yang and Five Substance. I will return to these theories in the future to show why they are as scientific as any other scientific theory; but for this particular Lunar New Year edition, I hope the reader will allow me to skip over this detail.

    Asian American Studies Asian American Studies focuses on the Asian American cultural and historical experience in the United States, covering the evolution of social, political and economic institutions of Asian American communities and their relationship to the larger American society. The Asian American Studies program offers a unified and comprehensive curriculum that seeks to make at least three major contributions. First, it prepares students for positions of service and leadership in the Asian American communities. Second, the program explores the hitherto neglected aspects of the cultural, political and historical experiences of Asians in America. Third, the program broadens the curriculum at Berkeley to include instruction that reflects the conditions of Asians and other Third World people living in America.

    Asian Pacific American Resources
    at the Smithsonian This brochure was published by the Smithsonian's Office of Public Affairs , April 1997.
    Visitors to one of the annual Festival of American Folklife presentations had an opportunity to learn about conservation of traditional crafts, including Hmong embroidery.
    As a public trust, the Smithsonian is fully committed to reflecting and serving this nation's diverse and changing society. The Institution attempts to fulfill this goal by embracing the many social and cultural threads that comprise the tapestry of American life and making these resources widely accessible. Asian Pacific Americans constitute the fastest growing racial group in the United States, numbering 9.76 million people, or 3.7 percent of the nation's population, in 1995. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, current trends indicate that, by the year 2050, 10 percent of Americans will trace their roots back to the region that extends from the South Asian peninsula through East Asia to the archipelagos of the South Pacific and Hawaii. This rapid increase is primarily due to immigration, with Asians and Pacific Islanders accounting for 36 percent of this country's newcomers. Although widely perceived as a single, homogeneous group, Asian Pacific Americans represent more than 24 ethnic groups, who speak a wide array of languages and dialects. Many are recent newcomers to the United States, while other Asian Pacific American families have lived for as many as six generations in this country. Still others, however, are indigenous peoples of the Pacific, including Native Hawaiians, Samoans and Chamorros. These ethnic, religious and historical differences among Asian Pacific Americans pose special challenges to those who seek to study, preserve and share their experiences.
