East of California

This "Directory" was compiled for the members of the East of California Network. The Network is an organization of nearly seventy institutions in higher education dedicated to the promotion of Asian American Studies. The group was formed in the Fall of 1991 on the campus of Cornell University, where representatives from twenty-three colleges and universities resolved to establish the network. Its purposes are: (1) to institutionalize Asian American Studies; (2) to develop regional-specific research and publications; and (3) to provide mutual support to individuals and programs.

The network is a caucus within the Association for Asian American Studies, the national professional organization for the field. It meets twice annually, in the fall at a member campus and in the spring at the annual meeting of the Association for Asian American Studies. The network is open to interested students, faculty, and staff, and encourages the involvement of allied community institutions like museums and service organizations. The caucus is headed by a coordinating committee that directs the activities of the network, plans the annual fall meeting, coordinates symposia held at member campuses, and organizes panels on Asian American Studies at student organization meetings. Members of the 2002-2003 Coordinating Committee include: Sharon Lee (University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign) (Co-Chair), Steve Yao (Ohio State University) (Co-Chair), Antoinette Charfauros McDaniel (Oberlin College), John Park (University of Illinois at Chicago), Ling Yan Yang (Indiana University of Pennsylvania), Crystal Parikh (University of Utah), Amy Stillman (University of Michigan), Kandice Chuh (University of Maryland), and Martin Manalansan (University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign).This "Directory" was compiled for the members of the East of California Network.
