Description
ENG 5206 TRANSNATIONALISM AND ASIAN AMERICAN LITERATURE In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Asian America was constructed by U.S. immigration policies via exclusion acts and quotas. In the 21st century Asian America is located within complex spaces characterised by geographical and cultural border crossings. Interactions between the U.S. nation state and Asia are transformed by globalisation and the rise of Asia. This module will explore the reconceptualisation of Asian America from the perspective of transnationalism through a selection of literary texts. Topics may include immigration and settlement patterns, nation/nation building, transnationalism, transculturalism, boundaries, border-crossing.
