Since the 19th century, American law has shaped the demographics, experiences, and possibilities of Asian Americans. In this seminar we will examine the profound impact of the law in shaping this community through discussing cases, law review articles, and recent work in Asian American studies. The course will be primarily organized around particular themes which have shaped the racialization of Asian Americans, such as immigration exclusion, disenfranchisement from citizenship, racial triangulation, colonialism, internment and redress, 9/11 and its aftermath, and the question of culture.
