Description

The UBC Asian Canadian and Asian Migration Studies (ACAM) program is hosting a public event on Asian Canadian Representation and Media, featuring a Q&A with Simu Liu, an actor best known for his role as Jung on CBC's Kim's Convenience. This event is built upon the program's new course ACAM 250: The Idea of 'Asian Canadian' in Popular Culture, taught by Professor John Paul (JP) Catungal, and is a part of ACAM5, a year long series of events to mark the program's fifth anniversary.
