SOC 255 - Sociology of Asian America
4 credits (Fall or Spring)
The course examines the experiences of immigrants from Asia - and subsequent generations - in the U.S. using a sociological perspective. Emphasis will be on how the changing global capitalist and geopolitical landscapes shape the economic processes, political institutions, and social norms that, in turn, govern the interactions, roles, and expectations of Asian Americans. At the same time, the course foregrounds the agency and subjectivities of Asian American.
