HIST 2471 Asian American History (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

This class surveys the history of Asians in America from the late nineteenth century to the present. We will examine how relationships between the United States and various Asian countries have negotiated their claims to U.S. citizenship and social belonging. This negotiation is a dynamic and ongoing process, framed by changing constructions of race, class, gender, sexuality, and inter-generational conflict, as well as by intra- and inter- group conflict. We will consider these complex dynamics and the way they have operated within, and have been produced by, Asian American history.
