Asia Bostock | Chinese American Women in History Conference Manager
Asia Bostock is a second year Public History MA student at American University. She graduated magna cum laude from the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa with a B.A. in History and concentrations in Political Science and French. Born and raised in Honolulu, she currently works at President Lincoln’s Cottage and is writing her thesis on contemporary social interpretations of exclusion-era, Chinese-Irish marriages and the children that they produced, a project that was born of her ongoing desire to research various multiracial American narratives. Through her work at 1882 Foundation, Asia hopes to gain experience working at an organization that values bringing Asian American narratives to the forefront, and is eager to incorporate public history practices into the upcoming Chinese American Women in History Conference in March 2019.
