From Tiger Mom to Jeremy Lin (AAJA)
Session 1143
Room: Breaker C

The emergence of blogs like 8Asians and Angry Asian Man underscores the
ever-expanding trade of covering Asian-American popular culture. The buzz
around Asian-American culture and perceptions reached a new apex recently
with the debate over the so-called “Tiger Mom” phenomenon and the rise of
cross-cultural icon Jeremy Lin. We talk to some of the nation’s top Asian
pop culture bloggers to discuss the latest trends among Asian Americans,
what new stereotypes might be emerging and how they keep track of it all.
