Description

This course examines the long history and diverse experiences of Asian Americans in the United States. Starting with their immigration in mass numbers in the mid-1800s, Asian Americans have shaped U.S. politics, culture, society, and economic life. At the same time, Asian Americans have often been viewed as "foreigners" in the U.S. Covering the 19th century to the present day, this course will review the Asian American experience in light of themes such as

  • Asian migration in the context of changing immigration policies
  • American imperialism and U.S.-Asia relations
  • transnationalism
  • political engagement and community activism
  • ethnic and racial identity formation
  • the “model minority” stereotype
  • pan-ethnic, interracial and multiracial communities and relations
  • popular culture and mass media representation
  • gender and sexuality
  • religious pluralism
