ENGLISH 169B: Asian-American Literature and Criticism (ASNAMST 168B)

This course provides a broad overview of twentieth and twenty-first century Asian-American fiction and memoirs as well as the major critical frameworks that have arisen since the emergence of the Asian-American studies as a formal discipline in the 1960s. We'll begin by reading early works such as the Filipino-American writer Carlos Bulosan's 1947 novel America is in the Heart within the context of Cold War America and end with an examination of post-9/11 Asian-American literature, including Ruth Ozeki's A Tale for the Time Being and Qais Akbar Omar's A Fort of Nine Towers. By comparing the experiences of writers from East, Southeast, and Central Asia, we'll aim to arrive at a nuanced understanding of how imperialism, war, immigration, and legal battles have shaped the experiences of Asian-Americans. In addition to our weekly discussions, this seminar will also feature intensive writing tutorials designed to challenge students to produce a work of original scholarship.
