What is Asian and Pacific Islander American (A/PIA) literature? What are the concerns and currents of A/PIA writing and stories? This course presents an introduction to the literature, poetry, and artistic expressions of Asian and Pacific Islander Americans in the continental U.S. and Pacific Islands. Surveying a range of novels, short stories, poems, plays, and memoirs, we will examine a variety of cultural texts that give voice to the expansiveness of A/PIA lives and the capaciousness of their literary and creative imaginings. Topics and themes include coming-of-age stories, gender and sexuality, Pacific Islands and indigeneity, migration, identity, gendered racisms, stereotyping, and fantasy.
