Comparative Asian and Latina/o Immigrant Experiences
AMST 336
Spring 2016
Section: 01  

This seminar explores the comparative experiences and histories of Latinas/os and Asian Americans in the U.S. Over the course, we will cover a broad range of topics related to citizenship, discrimination, immigration, human rights, intermarriage, education, and housing segregation. Together we seek to understand how these two groups are connected in their political, economic, cultural, and social lives. The historical time frame of the readings and lectures will cover the mid-19th century period to the 21st century. There is a hemispheric approach that will discuss Asian migration to the Americas and Latina/o-Asian American foreign relations. As an interdisciplinary seminar, texts are drawn from various fields like sociology, political science, area studies, literature, gender studies, and labor studies.
