Asian American Studies Working Group

Reestablished in 2016, the Asian American Studies Working Group (AASWG) is the latest iteration of the decades-long push for Asian/American Studies at Duke.

In 2018, after years of mobilizing students, staff and faculty, the Asian American & Diaspora Studies program was established.

However, AASWG is still advocating for the establishment of:

  • A full department with a major degree granting program
  • More tenure-track Asian/American professors
  • More Asian/American classes (especially on non-East Asian topics)
  • Ethnic Studies at Duke
