AMST 3142: Asian American Pacific Islander Experience Through Literature
4 hours; 4 credits
This course explores three types of narrative: stories of immigration, of second-generation identity
construction, and those that emphasize global or postcolonial perspectives. Possible guiding
questions: How do Asian American texts represent class, gender, generation, and ancestral
histories? How do they use, challenge, or re-envision existing literary codes and conventions to
introduce issues not strictly literary? This course is the same as ENGL 3289.
Prerequisites: English 1010; or the Permission of the Program Director.
