A gift to GLAS from GLAS Visual Artist Intern Hana Rafee @hanarafee.art Nurul Hana Mohammed Rafee
.
.Title: Clouded Judgement
.
Date Created: October 2019
.
Materials Used: IKEA Children’s chair, wall paint, acrylic paint, & permanent marker
.
Clouded Judgement is a piece about the xenophobic comments that people made to me about my parents as I grew up. I decided to draw these airplanes and write these comments on a chair that was similar to the children’s chair that my siblings and I had in our childhood.
Although a lot of these comments were made to me when I was attending middle school and high school, they had a great impact on how I viewed my parents. A lot of these comments were made to me by teachers, guidance counselors, and social workers at my school; which led me to believe their negative views of my immigrant parents were true. Attending university and relearning the reality of racism and immigration had me reflecting on the adults in education systems that second generation Americans grow up in, and how these adults (who we call teachers) can improve or wreck a relationship between student and family.

Happy Foodie Friday to comfort you on this chilly fall weather: Congee
-from Nancy Liu, GLAS Student Advisory Board Member
.

Congee
.
.
“Congee is a rice porridge dish that varies in add-ons, but I grew up eating it with century eggs and chicken. Even though this is more of a morning dish in China, I would always make this with my mom in the afternoon and we’d have it for dinner. This is because we’d soak the rice in the morning so that it’d be ready later to cook with. My mom always would make this for me when I was sick and during cold winter days. This is a dish that I grew up eating and I hope y’all have the chance to try this dish, too!”
.
.
Recipe:
.
.
Wash a cup of rice twice. Soak the rice in 4 cups of water for 2 hours. Remove the water from the rice
.
.
Clean and slice ginger into ¼ inch
.
.
Boil 6 cups of water on medium high heat. Add sliced ginger in to water with a 2 tablespoons of oil
.
.
Add the rice into the water. Cover lid and allow to simmer over medium heat
.
.
Continuously stir to prevent any rice from sticking to the bottom of the pot. Once the water begins to bubble, add small, half inch pieces of chicken
.
.
Season with a small amount of salt (around a teaspoon). Once the rice begins thicken and the chicken becomes cooked, taste the congee and season as needed with salt.
.
.
When the congee reaches the desired consistency (you can choose, but I personally slightly thicker consistency), dice 3 stalks of scallions and add to the congee (this can take up to 2 hours depending on if you simmer on low heat)
.
.
(Optional) Add a peeled and mashed century egg into the congee
.
.
Remove the congee from the fire

A message from Prof. Anna Guevarra.

Today This Is Me! presents the narrative of Dr. Anna Guevarra, the Founding Director of UIC Global Asian Studies Program. Please check out GLAS' page and their fabulous programming.

We appreciate Anna's words here. One central mission for college education should be about helping students develop moral character and cultivate moral courage to speak the truth. This mission is more critical than ever at this particular juncture of our history.

It is not easy to speak up, speak out, and most importantly speak truth to power. Most of us are afraid to be the only dissenting voice in the room. However, it is in these moments of speaking truths that gives testimony to one's character and integrity.

So speak, speak up, speak out! Do know that this takes practice. Let your conscience be your guide.

Thank you, Anna, for your words of advice. We appreciate YOU.
