This event is organized by CLAGS board member Jaime Shearn Coan, Mellon/ACLS Public Fellow at ONE Archives Foundation.

From the publisher: “A community memoir, Love Your Asian Body connects the deeply personal with the uncompromisingly political in telling the stories of more than thirty Asian American AIDS activists.”

Eric C. Wat, a 2018-19 LGBTQ Research Fellow at ONE Archives Foundation, will share archival materials from research conducted at ONE Archives at the USC Library, as well as a selection of his oral history interviews. He will then be joined in conversation with Jaime Shearn Coan.
