HIST 4494 Asian-Americans & U.S. Wars (Fall: 3 )
Wars have been central to the relationship between the United States and Asia and to the history of Asian Americans. This course explores the ways in which twentieth century American wars, in Asia and elsewhere, have transformed migrations between Asia and the U.S. as well as war's impact on Asian Americans, social, economic, political, and cultural life. Rather than emphasizing geopolitics, we will focus on themes of migration, citizenship and U.S. imperialism, nationalism, and transnationalism. The broad scope of this course will also allow us to examine such concepts as race, gender, national identity, power, and cultural representations.
