課程概述

This course is an introductory survey of Asian North American literature and criticism. Given their similar immigration policies and cultural specificities, North America here includes Canada and the U.S.A., and Asia here is understood as East Asia as South(east) Asia has another complicated British or European colonial history. Since this is an introductory class in nature, we will read the excerpts and a long novel from major works from the late 19th century to the present. While discerning the broad scope of Asian American literature as a whole, we will emphasize the recurring themes, the bi-cultural contexts in which these writers wrote, and their literary experimentation and innovation over the time.

To supplement our readings of literary texts, we will study selected works of criticism, history, and social sciences. As heterogeneity is a crucial concept in defining the umbrella term “Asian American,” an important goal will be to understand Asian North Americans as diverse groups and individuals given their different historical and cultural backgrounds. Not only will we study East Asian (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, Eurasian) North American (American and Canadian) writers, but we will also attend to varieties of sexual, regional, and religious identity, noting especially how these are shaped in and through history. The course also attempts to cover all genres (short story, poetry, fiction, prose, graphics) to give the students a panoramic view of the “heterogeneity” in this quite established discipline.

課程要求
I have zero tolerance with plagiarism. If you are caught plagiarizing in your assignment, you will automatically flunk the course and will be reported to the University for such unethical academic misconduct.

The papers should be prepared in accordance with the MLA style. All the reports have to be word-processed. If you do not know the MLA format, you are strongly encouraged to discuss it with me before you write.

Late papers after the due date will not receive a grade. Online submissions are not acceptable, either.

If you skip more than three times (including three), you will automatically flunk the course.

All the excepts of the stories and chosen essays are compiled in the course pack, and you need to purchase it. Please read the assigned texts before attending class for fruitful discussions.

For students interested in being the interlocutors with the students at MIT for the course Chinese Migration: 1567-present, there will be bonuses or extra credits for them.
