In this seminar, we will study the history, cultures, and documentation of Asian Americans in the U.S. South, from the 19th century to present. Drawing on a range of sources, from oral histories and poetry to documentary film and short stories, we will examine how Asian Americans have grappled with identity, belonging and home in the South. In our studies together, we will consider how Asian Americans have navigated national and regional histories of slavery and segregation, immigration exclusion, and the shifting borderlands of the American South and the Global South. With a focus towards working with community and institutional archives, we will explore how to research, discuss, write, and create with the stories of Asian Americans throughout the region, and across time, towards a richer understanding of Asian American history and identity.
