ASAM 40: The Chinese American Community

This course will cover the context of immigration and resettlement of Chinese Americans from the first wave until present day. From the lure of the gold mountain to the formation of ethnic enclaves, the Chinese American community has evolved with each immigration period and has faced various ranges of inclusion and exclusion. This course will cover early immigration (1800’s-1924), community (re)formation, war relations, and the communities that formed post 1965. To understand Chinese in America we must also examine gender, class, and racial formation in the context of both the immediate and greater communities.
