LIT-240 Asian American Literature FA2 (3)

This course is a survey of Asian American literature from the turn of the twentieth century to the present day. Obscured by the broad definition of "Asian America" is a staggering diversity of peoples that represent more than twenty-four distinct groups. Students discuss a wide array of works by Asian American writers in light of issues including immigration and migration, comparative racial formation, cross-racial alliance, gender/sexual citizenship, the model minority discourse, literary, and online activism. Both the diversity and the shared experiences of Asian Americans reveal the complex story of America's making. AU Core Habits of Mind: Cultural Inquiry. AU Core Integrative Requirement: Diversity and Equity.
