ENGL 4429 The Filipino American Experience (Spring: 3 )


Course Description

What does it mean to be Filipino American? How is literature, film, and discourse by Filipino Americans integrated into or neglected by mainstream America? In this course, we will seek to understand texts by Filipino American authors, scholars, and filmmakers; write creative nonfiction that reflects students' ethnic heritage; and engage in discussion of history and contemporary issues particular to Filipinos in America (such as the U.S./Philippine War, immigration, culture). Possible texts include: Bulosan, Hagedorn, Ascalon Roley, Cordova, and prominent Pinoy poets. Designed as a topic seminar for concentrators in Asian American studies, this course is open to all students.
