HIST 3470 - Asian American Women’s History

(crosslisted) AAS 3470 , AMST 3470 , FGSS 3470  
(CA-AS)      
Fall. 4 credits.

C. Lau.

This course examines the experiences and representations of Asian American women from the mid-19th century to the present. It explores the lives and contexts of immigrant women and of women born in the U.S. Questions of identity and power are at the heart of this course as we investigate the intertwined nature of race, gender, and nation. We will also pay particular attention to the practice of history, seeking a better understanding of how scholars recover the history of a population rendered invisible by traditional methods and inquiries. Course materials include numerous primary sources in addition to scholarship from a variety of disciplines (history, literature, sociology, anthropology).
