This course examines the long history and diverse experiences of Asian Americans in the United States. Starting with their immigration in mass numbers in the mid-1800s, Asian Americans have made major contributions to U.S. history, culture, and society. Despite this fact, Asian Americans are still viewed as "foreigners" in the U.S. This course will review the Asian-American experience from the mid-19th century to the present and analyze course topics such as anti-Asian immigration and legislation; the “model minority” stereotype and achievement; community activism and political movements; ethnic identity formation and acculturation; pan-ethnic, interracial and multiracial communities and relations; popular culture and mass media representation; and, emotional health, help-seeking, and service delivery.
