Introduction to Asian American Studies: Race and War

The current political climate is marked by seemingly endless war as well as ongoing conversations about “race,” “privilege,” and “power.” This course offers an introduction to Asian American studies that enables us to investigate all of these issue and works from the premise that multiple racial projects—including Orientalism, Islamophobia, anti-Black racism, and settler colonialism—contribute to Asian racial formation, and that warfare plays a central role in these projects.
