SOCY 42 A Sociological Introduction to the Asian American Experience

Within the last decade, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) have become the nation’s fastest-growing racial group. But, AAPIs come from nearly 50 countries and ethnic groups, so the AAPI experience is immensely dynamic and heterogeneous. This course examines key issues in AAPI communities, including global-historical context of migration; ethnic and racial consciousness; economic, social, and political status; cultural production; and family and gender relations. Sociological contributions about inequality, assimilation, and identity will be highlighted.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
