Asian American and Latino Studies Report Error

April 4, 2015 § Leave a comment

In a previous version of the report released yesterday on the status of Asian American and Latino studies at Princeton, the authors stated that Professor Leheny had to be persuaded by the University to teach EAS 338 (“…one taught by Professor David Leheny, a specialist in Japanese politics who does not have research interests particularly focused on Asian America. Though we appreciate that Professor Leheny is teaching a course relating to Asian American studies, the fact that the University has had to persuade Professor Leheny to teach this course exposes the lack of professors at the University with interests relating to Asian American studies, particularly in the social sciences”).
In fact, Professor Leheny had previously taught a version of this course in 2012 and was more than happy to re-structure the course so that it would overlap with Asian American studies. We apologize for this error.
We still encourage you to sign our letter of support for our proposal. That letter of support can be found here.
