SERI: Free To Be
Seri is a Thai word (เสรี) meaning “free, liberated, and/or independent” The phrase “seri Thai” (free Thailand) was widely used during an anti-war movement in Thai history when Thailand was under a military dictatorship that conceded to Japanese occupation. Nowadays, the word “seri” carries a connotation of triumph, hope, and heritage.
What is APAHM?
Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM) is a celebration of the culture and history of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States. Although APAHM is officially celebrated in the month of May, we celebrate APAHM here on Vanderbilt’s campus in the fall semester from October to early November.
