No Room Required - Online 4/20 While Asian American literature has long been engaging Asia from its incipient moment, there has been a recent upsurge of Asian American texts that are set heavily, if not entirely, in Asia. This course explores 21st Century Asian American cultural productions that track Asia in various ways, including: American protagonists visiting Asia, historical fictions set entirely in Asia, exploring Asian food, Asian lives and livelihoods before coming to the United States, and more. Our primary focus will be literature (novels, short stories, poems, plays, memoirs) but we will also look at films, documentaries, food shows, social media, and other forms of cultural productions. Through this examination, we will examine: Asian American aestheticizing of Asia; contemporary forms of globalization that allow for particular imaginations, attitudes, or modes of engaging Asia; politics, poetics, and ethics in engaging Asia as an Asian American; and the intertwined modernity and mutual construction of Asia, America, and Asian America.
