Additional Info:
Analysis, resources, and recommendations by a colloquy of 7 Asian and Asian North American professors of religious and theological studies in largely white institutions. What impact does this isolation have on their functioning as faculty, and specifically in their attempt to introduce Asian or Asian North American perspectives into their respective theological disciplines? What extra constraints or requirements are placed on their struggle to teach as effectively and faithfully as they would like? And what about the dynamics of teaching primarily white or other non-Asian students?
