Primary Instructor:

This course is an introduction to the issues raised, and analytical approaches used by, Asian/Pacific Islander American Studies scholars in the humanities. Particular topics and course content will vary by instructor. Overall, though, students will consider a diverse set of literary, historical, and theoretical texts that illuminate the experiences and representations of Asian/Pacific Islander Americans in the United States. Courses under this number might center on literature, religion, philosophy, performing arts, media, and/or material cultures. Special attention will be given to how Asian/Pacific Islander Americans are imagined as a distinctive cultural group and whether such imaginings make sense in a transnational context. This class is the complement to the social science focus of ASIANPAM 206.

Course Requirements:

Will vary by instructor and topic. In general for the 200 level, American Culture expects 70-90 pages of reading per week. Students will also complete 8-12 pages of writing outside of class; take in-class exams or quizzes; and actively participate in class discussions.

Intended Audience:

Freshman, sophomores, and juniors interested in a Hummanities approach to Asian/Pacific Islander American Studies.
