"...just call me Bob"

”Hello My Name is Nadir Ratanaruengjumrune, But my Friends call me Bob” -- that's the topic for the first in a series of talks on Asian Pacific Americans.

It will be held from noon to 1 p.m. 23 January in the Asian Culture Center of Indiana University, 807 East 10th Street, Bloomington. A light lunch provided to participants.

Names affect lives: would a "Nadir" for example, live the same life that a "Bob" would? Participants will look at the increasing trend of Asian Americans who use their Westernized names over their "Asian" names. This talk will also discuss the different causes for these changes, ranging from the hilarious to the practical.
