Asian Americans and Asia

Course Description

This course examines how the relationship between the U.S. and Asia has shaped the experiences of Asians in the U.S. and the racial formation of Asian Americans. The course focuses on war and militarism, international political and economic relations, and globalization to analyze their impact on migration, racial politics, economic practices, identity, community formation, sexuality and activism among Asians in the U.S. The course explores historical and contemporary examples from the 19th century to the present to assess efforts by Asian Americans for self-determination in a transnational context.
