What should be a fascinating time for Asian studies, because of a growing Asian American population that brings diversity and a pop culture impact, is being tempered by a sharp rise in violence against Asian Americans. Professor Joseph Alter, Director of the Asian Studies Center at the University of Pittsburgh, talks with host Sheila Hyland about what’s behind the violence and how educators are returning to their primary mission of teaching about Asian culture to break down misunderstandings that can lead to brutality.
