ENGL 066. In/Visible: Asian American Cultural Critique
Popular representations of Asian Americans frame this immigrant group as either invisible (unseen and unheard) or hypervisible (as "yellow peril" or "terrorist"). By contrast, the writers, scholars, and artists that we will examine in this class challenge such linear narratives, and create new futures of Asian America. This class will highlight critical theories of race and ethnicity in relation to a wide range of textual forms: literature, performance, visual culture. Students will also collaborate, when possible, with Asian American arts organizations in the Philadelphia area.
Prerequisite: ENGL 065, 19th/20th Century English course
INTP, GSST, FMST classes will also be considered.
