Please join UNC’s DLC Lab in collaboration with the Asian American Center for a talk with Dr. Tara Fickle (Associate Professor of English at the University of Oregon). The talk — “New Yellow Peril: Asia/America at Play” — is part of the DLC Lab’s Critical Gaming Initiative. Funded by the NEH, the initiative centers humanistic inquiry in the study and teaching of games by cultivating a community of instructors, fostering innovative research, and providing resources, including the Greenlaw Gameroom, UNC’s first game-based classroom.
Dr. Fickle is Associate Professor of English at the University of Oregon, and an Affiliated Faculty member in the Department of Indigenous, Race, and Ethnic Studies, the Center for the Study of Women in Society, and the Center for Asian & Pacific Studies. Her first book, The Race Card: From Gaming Technologies to Model Minorities, (NYU Press), studies the way that games have both established and resisted against racial stereotypes of Asians and Asian Americans.
When: Wednesday, March 30 at 3:30pm.
