This course focuses on the histories of Asian/Pacific Americans in the United States. Covering the seventeenth century until the present day, this course explores the experiences of a variety of Asian ethnic groups, including Korean, Filipino, South Asian, Southeast Asian, Pacific Islander, Chinese, and Japanese Americans. Transnational in scope, this course situates the migration of Asian/Pacific Islanders in the broader history of the U.S.’s relationship with the Pacific world and pays special attention to how the lives of A/PI Americans have been shaped by global capitalism and labor, imperial expansion, foreign policy, decolonization and self-determination, transnational social movements, and cross-racial politics. In addition, this course examines how histories of Asian/Pacific Americans have been shaped by, and have simultaneously challenged, regimes based on race, gender, sexuality, religion, disability, and class.
