Description
The ITASA National Conference will be held at the University of Pennsylvania from Thursday, February 14 to Sunday, February 17. 

Our theme this year is "Me and Ama: Weaving together stories of our past with memories of our future". Through Me and Ama, we hope to create a space for intimate dialogues and communal growth around Taiwanese American identity.

Through Me and Ama, we hope to create a space for intimate dialogues and communal growth around Taiwanese American identity. We aim to begin answering the questions: What does it mean to belong to Taiwanese America? What are our family stories? What are the questions, loves, and tensions we hold in our families?

Recognizing the diversity within Taiwanese America, we also hope to center those who are often not included in the Taiwanese American narrative, such as LGBTQ+ folks and those of Hakka or indigenous Taiwanese descent. Bringing people together means both telling our own stories and listening to others. We hope that we can expand our time together to include space for our pasts and our futures, first-time conference goers and last time conference attendees, all shapes and colors of intersectional identities, and the warmth of feelings as memories that transcend time.

*Hotel Housing will be at the University City Sheraton, which is within walking distance of campus!
