Filipino American Artist Directory is a participatory artist project and independent initiative by St. Louis-based artist Janna Añonuevo Langholz to connect the broad community of visual artists of Filipino heritage living and working in the United States. It aims to increase the visibility and recognition of Filipino American artists through an online archive and annual publication for students, educators, curators, and collectors. The project was founded in 2015, inspired by the book The Decolonized Eye: Filipino American Art and Performance by Sarita Echavez See.
The Race and Oral History Project (ROHP) is a multi-faceted curricular experience for undergraduates to engage the history and contemporary life of understudied racial and ethnic communities in San Diego. It connects knowledge acquired in the classroom with how it is applied or experienced by people in surrounding communities. Students will learn to conduct community-based research, develop public and digital humanities skills, and preserve a collection of oral histories for future scholarship on San Diego.
