Asian/Pacific Islander American Cultural Performance & Shows at the University of Michigan

Directed by Amy Stillman

Launched in 2012, this site documents student-organized cultural performance activities among the Asian/Pacific Islander American community at the University of Michiga. The website was created, and is maintained annually, by students enrolled in the course AMCULT & ASIANPAM 352 “Asian American Cultural Performance.” There are PDF files of printed program booklets from shows reaching back into the mid-1990s, original research projects conducted by students in the course, and links to organizationsʻ Facebook pages and YouTube channels.
