These include Asian Americans and the U.S. and Global South, genealogies of violence related to Asian American communities, recent trends in Asian American and diasporic popular culture, and climate change. By examining a range of genres and critical methods, this course will advance understanding of how Asian America has shaped the making of American culture and history.
