This course looks at comparative representations of Vietnam by considering literary works written by American and Vietnamese American authors. To guide our studies, we will examine diverse primary texts in conjunction with scholarship drawn from literary criticism and Asian American studies. Our cross-cultural approach will be aimed at understanding how representing Vietnam continues to shape changing ideas about American culture, nationhood, and power in Southeast Asia.
