This course draws upon diverse literatures to map the terrain of hybrid identity performances by Blacks and Asians in popular culture. By the course’s end, we will be able to answer the questions: How are AfroAsian identitities expressed, be it struggle, resistance, stereotype, or coalition? How has the expression of AfroAsian identities developed over time? What are the possibilities of an AfroAsian alliance beyond popular culture?
