On September 10, 2021. we had a panel discussion to reflect on the issues raised by the Netflix drama series "The Chair" featuring Sandra Oh as the first Asian American woman to serve as the chair of the English Department in a fictional university.  We have invited panelists with diverse teaching and administrative experiences to share their responses to the drama.  They included Rev. Laura Mariko Cheifetz, Dr. Grace Yia-Hei Kao, Dr. Keun-Joo Christine Pae, and doctoral student Rosy Kandathil.  We plan to organize similar events on pop culture in the future.
