A Message from the Department of English
As a department, we stand in solidarity with the Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander communities, following the recent attacks in Atlanta, GA. The brutal murders of six Asian women still under investigation are not isolated incidents. They are an outcome of the increase in racial violence, xenophobia and harassment which have resulted from racist, anti-Asian rhetoric that circulated throughout the pandemic. We do not tolerate such violence, misogyny, and racism. To our AAPI students, colleagues, and staff: we see you, we value you as members of our community, we are listening, and we commit ourselves to amplifying your voices through the work of our department. We condemn these attacks in the strongest possible terms.
During this time of social distancing, our staff is here to help you virtually. You can find their contact information by clicking here.
