S9194: Asian American Studies in HSSP Spring 2015 (Feb. 21, 2015)
Over this course, we will explore historical and modern role of Asian Americans. Topics that we will learn about include the Asian American Civil Rights Movement, exclusionary immigration policy, modern US-China relations and American foreign policy towards China, how unfair treatment of Asian Americans affects other minorities, and modern social movements like "#NotYourAsianSidekick." In consideration of current events, we will also analyze how and why discrimination of Asian Americans differs from that of blacks, hispanics, and other minorities. Classes will consist of engaging discussions, reading excerpts from various papers, and watching exciting videos. A respectful atmosphere will be maintained in class, and everyone of all viewpoints and philosophies is welcome! This class is for anyone who wants to enrich their understanding of American history, become a more world-aware person, and learn how to solve these instances of systemic oppression.
