What does Asian American student pain look and feel like? And what structures of care do we need to tend to this unwellness? Join us as we have a conversation with Mimi Khúc, exploring the breadth and depth of our individual and collective unwellness and begins to identify the social, cultural, and structural forces that contribute to it in order to begin brainstorming the kinds of care we need.

Mimi Khúc, PhD, (she/her) is a writer, scholar, and teacher of things unwell, and an adjunct lecturer, sometimes in Disability Studies at Georgetown University. She is the managing editor of The Asian American Literary Review and guest editor of *Open in Emergency: A Special Issue on Asian American Mental Health,* a hybrid book-arts project that works to decolonize Asian American unwellness. Her work explores creative and critical approaches to building collective care.
