ENGL 065. Asian American Literature


How does Asian American literature function as the site of key debates about ethnic and national identity? This course explores Asian American cultural production over the past 50 years, beginning with Flower Drum Song (1961), the first Hollywood film starring an all-Asian American cast, and ending with the Pulitzer Prize winning author Jhumpa Lahiri's short stories. Authors include Maxine Kingston, Chang-Rae Lee, David Henry Hwang, and Theresa Hak-Kyung Cha.
