Author Talk: Theodore Gonzalves on ‘Smithsonian Asian Pacific American History, Art, and Culture in 101 Objects’

July 17 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free; RSVPs requested

Join Asia Society Texas for an author talk with Dr. Theodore Gonzalves, who will share his latest book, Smithsonian Asian Pacific American History, Art, and Culture in 101 Objects, which invites readers to experience both well-known and untold stories through influential, controversial, and meaningful objects from the Smithsonian’s vast collection.

Through thematic chapters and full-color illustrations, Dr. Gonzalves explores complex history and shared experiences, including navigation, intersections, labor, innovation, belonging, tragedy, resistance and solidarity, community, service, memory, and joy. A spirited and beautifully illustrated book, Smithsonian Asian Pacific American History, Art, and Culture in 101 Objects offers a vital window into objects that embody and engage with Asian Pacific American issues such as the immigrant experience, the importance of media representation, what history officially gets documented versus what does not, and so much more.
