Lecture and Asian Studies Awards

The Asian Studies Research Award and Outstanding Student Award will be presented at the Asian Studies Honors Lecture April 1 at 3:30 in Woods 115. Dr. Nikhil Bilwakesh from UA's English Department will present his lecture "W.D. Fard and the Unincorporated Margin of South Asian America," arguing that Fard's ideas, via Elijah Muhammad's writings, offer one of the most creative literary negotiations of race and geography in early twentieth-century Asian and Asian American studies, with a legacy in the work of rap artists like Nas and Rakim. A reception will follow the lecture and awards.
