WELLESLEY: South Asian America talk

“South Asian America: How media, entertainment and politics are changing everything”
Wellesley College
Asian American Awareness Month
Thursday, March 6, 2008

I spoke tonight at a gathering on the beautiful Wellesley campus (my first time here; less than an hour outside Boston’s Logan airport). The event was organized as part of the college’s Asian American Awareness Month celebrations. I was asked to talk about South Asians and the media and used the opportunities to address some of the changes I have observed all around us. Here are the photo, videos and links I used during my talk.
