Reading Asian American Experiences

Barry O'Connell (Section 01)


Our course will explore the multiple histories of some of the peoples from many different parts of Asia primarily from Japan, parts of China, Korea, and the Philippines. Historians in some cases will provide markers but more often it will be literary texts. These may avoid the easy mistake of suggesting there are "typical" experiences, or of inviting us to accept ever the adequacy of any generalization.
