Class Description:
Dragon Ladies, Lotus Blossoms, and Tiger Moms are some of the ways that Asian American women are understood and framed within dominant American culture. This semester, this course will focus on writings by Asian American women. This is in an exciting moment when writings by Asian American women are widely published and acknowledged as new, significant voices that explore intersections of language, cultural and national identities, race, gender, sexuality, and class in American discourse. This course will introduce students to a wide range of texts by Asian American women writers. Through these creative expressions, we will examine the histories, cultures, languages, and identities of Asian American women looking at questions of war, empire, migration, family, labor, community, their representations of migration, family, work, and community. We will think about how the aesthetic form is used, mobilized, and transformed in order to tell stories about Asian America. Texts include: The Woman Warrior, Interpreter of Maladies, The Temperature of this Water, and Migritude
