Asian American Politics
GOVT 377
Spring 2015 not offered

This course examines the political history and contemporary trends in Asian American politics. Topics will include, but are not limited to, pan-ethnic identity and racial group consciousness; the political status, participation, and representation of Asian Americans in the American political system; interminority conflict and cooperation; the growing number of multiracial Asians and the future of Asian American identity and politics. Although the primary focus of the course is Asian Americans, our examination of Asian American politics will be situated within the larger literature and context of racial and ethnic politics in the United States. This course will help students develop a broader understanding of Asian American political behavior in the United States.
