HIST 2043 Asian American Oral History (also AAS 2043) (HST-AS, SCD-AS)

Tuesday and Thursday: 2:55-4:10 plus Independent Research

Professor Derek Chang

This seminar will explore Asian American history through the methodology of oral history.  Students will read Asian American historical scholarship that has relied on oral history methods, but they will also engage with theoretical and methodological work around the use of oral sources.  Students will develop, research, and present oral history projects.  Themes include power and knowledge production, the role of oral history in documenting the Asian American past, and local and family histories as avenues through which to explore oral history methods.
