Global Asian Studies
Theme: “How do you experience Global Asia?”
The new Global Asian Studies Program (GLAS) at UIC wants you to help us spread the word about our exciting new program! GLAS will combine Asian American Studies (ASAM) and Asian Studies (ASST) into an innovative new Program that explores transnational Asian cultures, histories, and communities. We are looking for brief (3 minute or less) videos that will help us imagine the idea of Global Asia, and shape what the Global Asian Studies Program will become. What ideas, experiences or events come to mind when you think of “Global Asia?” We want your most creative, original, and impactful ideas, and they can take any form—dance, skit, poetry, performance art, digital story, PSA (public service announcement), infomercial, or anything else.
Eligibility and Guidelines: Any UIC undergraduate can enter (must be currently registered). Videos must be less than 3 minutes long. Do not submit the original video file. Instead you should post your video online (such as on YouTube) and submit a link to the video. Your video should be appropriate for a general audience.
Each video-making group can have as many members as it wants, but you need to appoint one person as the main contact. This is the person who will receive the prize money and it is their responsibility to disburse the money to group members.
Submissions Due: Monday, March 28, 2016, online at: http://go.uic.edu/GLASvideo
Prize: One (1) $300 Prize for First Place; One (1) $150 Prize for Second Place
Two (2) $50 Prizes for Honorable Mention
The winning entries will be announced and screened at the ASAM Expo, to be held on April 22, 3-5 pm in the Cardinal Rm (329 SCE). For any questions, please contact the Acting Director of the ASAM Program, Prof. Mark Chiang (email@example.com).
