WLL 237 - Becoming “Asian”: Asian American Cultural Representations and Identities


Credits: 3
An exploration of the identity formation and ongoing experiences of Asian Americans in American society. Students will examine how Asian Americans have been racialized, gendered, and sexualized in American culture both historically and contemporaneously, and what these cultural representations reveal about issues of identity, belonging, class, and citizenship in American society and the globalized world. Students will read stories written by Japanese/American writers on a variety of topics including immigration, labor, family, community, sexuality, militarism, globalization, and social movements while examining them through an intersectional lens.
Note(s): Fulfills cultural diversity and humanities requirements; fulfills bridge experience, humanistic inquiry and global cultural perspectives.
