Syllabus Description (from Canvas):

Since the nineteenth century, Asian American communities have responded to prevailing socioeconomic, political, and cultural norms in a variety of ways across the political spectrum. We will explore the multiple political traditions forged by Asian Americans, from the earliest challenges to racist laws and colonial domination to the latest debates over immigration and the “model minority.” How have Asian American communities organized to oppose and to perpetuate social inequalities within and beyond the United States, including those based on race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, class, and citizenship?
