A&S 343 Asian America

This capstone course is designed to allow you to apply and improve your training in anthropology and sociology by focusing on Asian American Studies, and exciting and rapidly changing interdisciplinary field that draws heavily from these disciplines. In this course, we will explore the diversity of Asian/Pacific groups in the Americas; their trajectories of migration, racialization and community formation; and the history and debates surrounding the study of Asian Americans. In addition to focusing on people's everyday lived experiences, we will also discuss multiple approaches to "Asian America" as a topic of scholarship and activism. We will be paying close attention to the ways that Asian American identities are not only about race and ethnicity, but also gender, generation, sexuality, and class. [GM1, GM2, W]
