Sometimes, it is more important to think about why certain stories are told as “authentic history” while other stories have not been heard. APAS 200 will challenge you to connect Asian Pacific American historical experiences to contemporary issues that affect us today. Over the semester, as you read the coursework, listen to lectures, and discuss the subject with others, ask yourself what roles do you as an APAS student play in reclaiming a shrouded past, negotiating an unstable present, and acting in an unknown future. This is a core course for the APAS Certificate http://www.asu.edu/clas/apas/certificate.html and also counts as Cultural Diversity in the U.S. (C) and [Humanities (HU) or Social and Behavioral Sciences (SB)] for General Studies Requirements.
