Courses: Asian America in Global Perspective (HISTH121B01)

Spring 2013

This course is an introduction to Asian American history from a global perspective. We explore the broader historical developments that gave rise to the concepts Asia and America to trace their significance and consequence for later Asian (and other) migration to the United States specifically and the Americas generally. Topics we will address include: geography and geopolitics; global capitalism, diaspora, and labor migration; race, ethnicity, and culture; gender, family, and community; nationalism and citizenship; and the idea of Asian American in the civil rights and post-civil rights era.
