The Department of Asian American Studies proudly announces its first publication: feminist poet Mitsuye Yamada's Full Circle: New and Selected Poems (2019).
Foreword by Cherríe Moraga. Essays by Diane C. Fujino and Shirley Geok-lin Lim.
"There is something about the 'Full Circle' Portrait of Mitsuye Yamada's life writings found on these pages that gives one hope. Hers is a living testimony of moving from invisibility to a politicized visibility as a woman, as Japanese American, and now as elder at the precipice of a near-century of conscienced political evolution."
-- Cherríe Moraga, co-editor of This Bridge Called My Back: Writings by Radical Women of Color
