Class Details

Assuming some previous knowledge of Asian American history, this course will examine a number of specific topics in Asian American Studies. Using historical sources, monographs, graphic memoirs, novels, and films, potential topics include Asians of mixed race, Orientalism, adoption, food culture, the “model minority,” legal studies, Asian Americans and the environment, and the impact of war on Asian American history. This is an EDI course because it examines the comparative history of a number of Asian immigrant groups and their relationship with each other and other racialized peoples in American culture.
