Literature and Politics: Performing Asian/Asian American Identity

CMLT-C 343 — Fall 2022 — Themester

Course Description

In this class we will study Asian and Asian American performance texts in direct comparison in order to better understand the dynamic relationships between performance and identity as applied to various conceptions and politics regarding Asian identity(s) globally. This class will use lecture, discussion, and creative workshops. Although we will consider Asia broadly, the texts in this class will primarily focus on Southeast Asia, China, and the United States and the people living among those places.
