CRN: 27263

Instructor: Lynn Fujiwara

Term: Winter 2018

A pan-ethnic group, Asian Americans are one of the fastest growing populations in the United States. This course provides an introduction to the historical formation of Asian America as well as contemporary issues faced by the highly diverse communities that comprise it. As demanded by the interdisciplinary nature of the field of Asian American Studies, this course relies on a range of historical, literary, ethnographic, and visual texts and makes comparisons with other racialized groups in the United States. Topics include Asian American immigration, exclusion, globalization and labor, anti-racism, and popular cultural representations. This course will also provide necessary foundations for students wishing to pursue more disciplinarily-focused advanced courses.ES 252 Syllabus W. 2018-snf1l7
