Congratulations to Dr. Tan Lin!

The University recently announced that Dr. Tan Lin, professor of Creative Writing in the English Department has been awarded grants from the Asian American Arts Alliance and the Andy Warhol Foundation. According to the Asian American Arts Alliance web site, Dr. Lin’s work is a:

photographic novel that blurs the line between fiction and non-fiction. The artist finds interesting newspaper stories and re-tells them as though they happened to him; inserting flea market photographs to “prove” that they happened to him. The work explores feelings of displacement, and the construction of identity and kinship, as experienced by first and second generation immigrants.
