Chinese-American best-selling author and historian Iris Chang will be speaking at 8 p.m. in Hoyt Auditorium on April 13 in an event co-sponsored by the Chinese Students’ Association and the Outside Speakers Comittee.”Ms. Chang is a leading writer about the Asian American experience and the issues of human rights,” President and senior Henry Law said. “We feel that all people should learn about this area of history that is largely absent from what we learn in American History classes. It adds to the diversity of the college and a greater understanding of the ‘American’ culture.”Chang is the author of “Thread of the Silkworm,” “The Rape of Nanking,” and her most recent book “The Chinese in America: A Narrative History.””This is a very important event to CSA and the university community as a whole,” Law said. “The CSA asked her to come to UR because at the beginning of the academic year, we had decided that we want to take a more educational approach this year to go along with the social activities that we hold.”Admission to the event is $5 for the general public, $3 for University faculty and staff and other college students with ID and free for UR undergraduates. Tickets are on sale at the Common Market in Wilson Commons or at the door.Schnee can be reached at

A reality in fiction: the problem of representation

Oftentimes, rather than embracing femininity as part of who they are, these characters only retain traditionally masculine traits.
