“In the panel ‘Multiculturalism or Political Correctness?,’ pioneering Asian American novelist and UC Berkeley alumnus Shawn Wong described his experiences at UC Berkeley in the 1960s, a time when ‘no classes, no teachers, no credit’ existed for Asian American studies. Wong’s personal narrative speaks to systemic hurdles that distance ethnic minorities from the study of literature.”
