HIST 305 - Asian American History (US)

This course offers an in-depth survey of the history of people of Asian descent from the first arrivals of significant numbers of Asians in American in the mid-19th century to the present, with heavier emphasis on the post-1965 era. In that year, the Hart-Cellar Act lifted earlier restrictions on Asian immigration and initiated substantial migration from the East. The course covers significant events and people in Asian American history while examining the course of ordinary individuals through demography, law, family, and cultural history. This history enables students to learn about and analyze issues of tradition/modernity; race, acculturation, and identity politics; culture and the intersection of laws and politics; and multiculturalism. While coverage extends to every Asian nationality present in the United States, emphasis is placed on the largest groups including Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Filipinos. (US)
