Fifty years ago, it might've been easier to identify with a single race when filling out forms in America. A lot has changed since then, including the ratio of people who do not neatly fit into the categories presented in applications today. In a lecture hosted by the Center for the Study of Race and Ethnicity in America, Jennifer Ann Ho will discuss the "Racial Ambiguity in Asian American Culture.” Ho will explore concepts relating to the ambiguity of race with a particular focus on the boundaries society places on Asian Americans who are multiracial, or transracial adoptees. Ho is a professor in the Department of English and Comparative Literature and an associate director of the Institute for the Arts and Humanities at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. The event begins at 5 p.m. in the Institute at Brown for Environment and Society, Room 130 (Carmichael Auditorium), 85 Waterman St.
