AAADS 50th Anniversary Campaign

Two years from now, in Fall 2019, Asian American and Asian Diaspora Studies (AAADS), will celebrate the 50th anniversary of its founding at the University of California, Berkeley. It was in 1969 that our program, along with African American, Chicano/Latino, and Native American Studies, was established within a new Department of Ethnic Studies. As a result of student and community activism, hitherto neglected experiences and contributions of racial minorities began to be recognized and studied in American institutions of higher learning.

Since that time, AAADS has produced and disseminated knowledge about the histories, cultures, and communities of diverse groups such as Chinese, Filipino, Japanese, Korean, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and more recently, Muslim Americans. Degree programs have prepared numerous students to be civic and political leaders, scholars and teachers, artists and cultural critics, and socially aware citizens across the nation.

We are proud of what AAADS has accomplished, but much remains to be done. To ensure our program’s continued growth, relevance, and vibrancy for generations to come, we are launching a fundraising campaign. Please join us in this worthy cause.

Asian American and Asian Diaspora Studies at UC Berkeley

The Asian American and Asian Diaspora Studies (AAADS) Program, one of the programs under the Department of Ethnic Studies, is dedicated to the interdisciplinary study of historical and contemporary experiences of Asian-ancestry groups in local, national, and global contexts. Asian American is a pan-ethnic term designating a racialized population made up of various groups of Asian ancestry, and encompassing both the foreign-born and the U.S.-born.

Founded in the late 1960s and early 1970s, the Asian American Studies program centered on domestic U.S. concerns. Today, while we continue to participate in a national effort to strengthen the political, economic, and cultural representation of people of color in American life, we extend our commitment to diasporic and transnational concerns.
