This interdisciplinary course focuses on the experiences of Asian American and Pacific Islander American women in the United States. Texts and films include an introduction to materials by and about Asian/Pacific Islander American (APIA) women, from historical, anthropological, sociological, psychological, musical, and literary perspectives, thereby allowing students to compare and contrast the experiences of different ethnicities and generations. Discussions and assignments will examine the intersections of gender, race, ethnicity, class, sexuality, and nationality in APIA women’s lives. Learning critical theories about feminism, immigration, and globalization will show how APIA women have become agents of social change, publicly and privately, at home and in their communities. For the term project, students will have the option of writing an oral history research essay, OR doing a creative project, OR volunteering with New Visions: Alliance to End Violence in Asian/Asian American Communities.
