Asian/North American Digital Life

This course examines Asian/North American digital life as the shifting intersections between Asian racialization and information technologies. We will link questions about migration, new media networks, and digital selves to the ongoing projects of settler colonialism and empire. These inquiries will be illuminated through critical analyses of race, gender, and sexuality and by drawing from relevant fields of study, including critical race, new media, and Asian North American studies. In addition to reading scholarship from these fields, students will have the opportunity to engage films, TV, digital media, literature, music, and other cultural productions.
