Engl 346R: Global Asian Diasporas


Screenshot 2020-06-18 14.11.36Join Dr. Vinh Nguyen this fall for the online course English 346R: Global Asian Diasporas. In Fall 2020, the theme of Global Asian Diasporas will be on “Asian-Black Relations.” According to Dr. Nguyen: We will take up the question of Asian diasporic or trans(national) formation through the lens of comparative racialization, particularly how “Asian” is understood in relation to “Black.” Focusing primarily on North America, we will examine racialized constructions of Asians and how they function with and against Blackness. We will look to moments of conflict and collaboration to understand past and present forms of coalition-building as well as decolonial, antiracist, and solidarity activism.
