Asian Americans and Racism
This course focuses on the status and experiences of Asian Americans in U.S. history and in contemporary times to examine categories of race, processes of racialization, and forms of racial subordination. Using a comparative approach, the course centers on the roles of anti-blackness and white exclusivity in the imaginative and institutional constructions of Asian Americans. Key themes include: labor and global capitalism, Orientalism and imperialism, immigration and exclusion, gender and sexuality, citizenship and nation, "good"/"bad" minorities and assimilationist thinking.
