1 Fall 2010 TuTh 2-3:15pm PUB AFF 1222 Stewart Chang Office hours: TuTh 1-2pm, location TBD E-mail: ASAM 187D - Gender and Sexuality in Asian America Course Description: The course will examine the intersections of sexuality and race in American law and politics as they relate to the Asian American community. Starting with Michel Foucault’s theories on sexuality and population control, the course will examine the history of early Asian American immigrants and their exclusion through sexual stereotypes and legal regulations on their sexuality. Here, the course will also explore the ways in which stereotypes of Asian American women and men evolved through the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The course will then examine the revised role of sexuality in constructing contemporary Asian Americans as model minorities defined by normative nuclear family relationships. Finally, the class will look at the ways in which this history informs our understanding of how Asian Americans react to issues such as interracial marriage and homosexuality, and how sexuality is currently being construed and performed differently in the transnational global Asian context. Course Objectives: 1. Understand the social construction of race, ethnicity, gender, class, and sexuality and how these systems independently and interdependently structure social relations in the dominant U.S. society.
