Presentation by Dr. Nichols Hartlep, Associate Professor of Education Studies and Robert Charles Billings Endowed Chair in Education, Berea College. A leading authority on the model minority stereotype, Dr. Hartlep will untangle the model minority stereotype of Asian/Americans in a way that will illuminate three racist elements of the model minority myth's sophistry and discursive nature, and its reliance on dog whistle politics. This talk will draw from three of his previous books: The Model Minority Stereotype: Demystifying Asian American Success, The Model Minority Stereotype Reader: Critical and Challenging Readings for the 21st Century and Killing the Model Minority Stereotype: Asian American Counter Stories and Complicity.
