This interdisciplinary course focuses on the experiences of Asian American and Pacific Islander American women in the United States, including, but not limited to Chinese, Japanese, Filipina, Korean, Native Hawaiian, South Asian, and Southeast Asian women.

Texts and films include an introduction to materials by and about Asian/Pacific Islander American (APIA) women — from historical, anthropological, sociological, psychological, musical, and literary perspectives — thereby allowing students to compare and contrast the experiences of different ethnicities and generations.

Discussions and assignments will examine the intersections of gender, race, ethnicity, class, sexuality, and nationality in APIA women's lives. Learning critical theories about feminism, womanism, immigration, domestic violence, and globalization will show how APIA women have become agents of social change, publicly and privately, at home and in their communities.
