Asian American Pacific Islander Independent Public
Use the assigned readings and the video Maya Lin to explain AAPI’s “critical engagement” (challenging mimicry and mockery) with American dominant mass media
expectations of AAPIs. If any, explain how the various examples (independent media) in the readings and video show the ways that AAPI’s identify, create, challenge,
and reproduce differently the mass media representations of AAPIs that follow the logics of yellow peril, yellow face and the model minority.
