ENGL 21029 - Asian-American Literature

Course Credit: 1
(CMLT)
ASIAN AMERICAN LITERATURE Within the context of European and American expansionism, a scholar writes, Asians did not go to America; Americans went to Asia. Asian diasporic literatures in the United States thus reflect ethnic resistance against legal, economic, social, and cultural practices of white nationalism and imperialism. Reading 19th-21st century texts by East, South, Southeast and West Asians in America, students will explore the perspectives of immigrants, second generation Americans, transnational adoptees, survivors of war, and activists.
