Event: UCLA AASC 40 th Anniversary, Don Nakanishi Tribute

AAV got in this announcement that may be of interest to friends in SoCal and wanted to pass it along. Don Nakanishi's name has been virtually synonymous with the Asian American Studies at UCLA, as well as the Amerasia Journal, and while the UCLA Center remains an important, vibrant research hub in the field, there's no doubt that Don's daily presence will be missed in his retirement. -- The Editors
