The DAAN business meeting and panel session at College Art Association (CAA) took place on February 14, 2014 at the Hilton Hotel in Chicago. Members began the meeting by sharing memories of important scholar, curator, colleague, friend and mentor Karin Higa.
Announcements included the publication of the Third Text special issue edited by DAAN members Dean Chan and Michelle Yee for the International Network for Diasporic Asian Art Research [INDAAR]: “The Transnational Turn: East Asian Mobility.” Also the new peer-reviewed journal, Asian Diasporic Visual Cultures and the Americas (Brill), was announced as a collaboration with Asian/Pacific/American Institute at New York University and The Gail and Stephen A. Jarislowsky Institute for Studies in Canadian Art at Concordia University. The journal is co-edited by DAAN members Alexandra Chang and Alice Ming Wai Jim and will launch in Winter/Spring 2015. The call for manuscripts has begun and the deadline for the first issue is June 1st (see listing below for more information). The Virtual Asian American Art Museum Project, a partnership between New York University, Getty Research Institute and Smithsonian Institution was also discussed.
The DAAN panel “Asia / Americas: Praxis and Pedagogy” discussed important issues of artistic production, teaching and the academy in relation to the conceptual hemispheric framing of Asia / Americas with panel chair Alice Ming Wai Jim and panelists Richard Fung, Beatrice Glow, Valerie Soe, and discussant Alexandra Chang. After the panel, DAAN members new and old gathered for dinner to continue the conversation in downtown Chicago.
This should be an exciting year ahead!
All our best,
