Asian American Women's History

This course explores the intersections of gender, race, and ethnicity in the historical experiences of Asian American women. We will consider a variety of themes significant to those experiences, including immigration and citizenship, exclusion and discrimination, family and community structures, paid and unpaid labor, women’s organizations and leisure, and resistance and activism. We will discuss how these historical experiences shaped the development of Asian American female subjectivities and feminisms.
