Mimi Khúc is a PhD in Religious Studies from UCSB and a Vietnamese American scholar, teacher, and writer on race and religion, queer of color politics, mental health, and Asian American motherhood. She has edited a special issue of the Asian American Literary Review called Open in Emergency: A Special Issue on Asian American Health which approaches mental health issues in the Asian American community using art and literature. The issue re-imagines wellness practices, including tarot cards remade by Asian American artists and writers into anti-racist and immigration-centric themes, and letters by daughters to their mothers. Inspired by these elements, participants will be invited to read their own futures and name the forces shaping their lives, as well as write letters to their mothers that they have always needed to write.
