AAS 211: Asian Americans and the Arts

This survey course focuses on Asian American visual and performing arts, providing the historical, theoretical, and conceptual foundation for understanding the concerns and controversies of art making. This course will consider histories of migration, racialization, war, and capital alongside questions of gender and sexuality, addressing issues of social relevance and purpose in relation to the aesthetic practices of art making. Prerequisite: AAS 100 or consent of the instructor.

Mondays & Wednesdays, 3:00-4:20 PM

AAS 501: Theories and Methods

This course is a foundational gateway course for graduate study in Asian American Studies, examining the political, historical, epistemological, and cultural bases of the field through an intensive reading of canonical works and study of core concepts in the field. Also highlights the problems of interdisciplinary research and scholarship and adopts an intersectional and coalitional approach to Asian American Studies as it assumes the necessary linkages between other areas in ethic/racial and gender/sexuality studies.

Mondays, 2:00-4:50 PM
