SOC 350 - Asians and America


What is the place of Asians in America’s cultural and political imagination? This course will examine the construct of ‘Asia’ as America’s ‘Orient’ and how Asians are Orientalized in America’s social landscape. The course will explore the social, cultural and political landscape that ‘Asians’ have come to occupy in the process of making the United States as a modern nation/state. The course will look at historical and sociological analyses, textual and personal narratives, films, music, dance, and other forms of visual representations. (Previously Sociology 280)
