Open in Emergency: Classroom Talk with Mimi Khúc



Join Disability Studies for this classroom visit with Mimi Khúc where she will discuss her work on Open in EmergencyOpen in Emergency is an arts and humanities intervention to decolonize mental health, a community effort, led by guest editor Mimi Khúc, to collectively ask what Asian American unwellness looks like and how to tend to that unwellness. Khúc states: "We asked, what hurts? And then, how do we go on living while it hurts? AALR provided a space for artists, scholars, organizers, and community to explore structures of care that we have already been building--and to dream into being new structures, new tools, to better care for our collective needs."

Mimi Khúc is a writer, scholar, and teacher of things unwell. Her research interests include race and mental health, queer of color feminist critique, religion and magic, and Asian American motherhood. She is an adjunct professor of Asian American Studies, American Studies, and Women and Gender Studies, and the managing editor of The Asian American Literary Review, a DC-based arts nonprofit. She is the guest editor of the recently published Open in Emergency: A Special issue on Asian American Mental Health, an arts and humanities intervention that works to rethink and decolonize Asian American un/wellness.
