AAS3301: Asian America Through Arts and Culture

3 CreditsArts/HumanitiesOnline AvailableRace, Power, and Justice in the United StatesSustainability

Americans of Asian descent comprise one of the fastest-growing racial groups in the U.S. today. While large numbers of Asian Americans have been in the U.S. since the middle of the nineteenth century, it is only in the past few decades that they have been widely recognized in art, culture, and media. This course focuses on how writing, art, performance, film, and/or other works of culture registers the experiences of Asian Americans past and present. How do individual artists or writers depict themselves and others as part of families, communities, or nations? How do questions of race, racism, family, identity, immigration, labor, citizenship, inequality, gender, sexuality, media stereotypes, and activism affect the perspectives and the creative choices in these works?
