Do you know of a student who may need to add another course? Consider Asian American History HIST A205
Tuesdays and Thursdays, 4-5:15 pm, Woodburn 106 Professor Ellen Wu
This course explores the history of Asian Americans in the United States from the mid-19th century to the present as part of the making of a “Pacific World.” Drawing from a range of disciplinary approaches, we will investigate various local and global forces that have shaped the lives of Asian Americans, as well as the ways in which Asian Americans have impacted regional, national, and international dynamics in the past 150 years. In thinking about the multiplicity of peoples and experiences identified as “Asian American,” we will interrogate what it has meant, and what it means, to be “Asian American,” and why these questions matter. Major themes to be explored include migration, labor, community formation, race, gender, citizenship, empire, war, nation, and transnationalism. Special emphasis will be given to the analysis of a range of primary sources as an introduction to the historian’s task of reading and interpreting the past.
A205 carries IUB Gen Ed S&H credit, COLL S&H Breadth of Inquiry credit, and COLL Cultural Studies credit. A205 also counts towards the minor in Asian American Studies. For more info, please email Assistant Professor Ellen D. Wu, History Department, Indiana University
