For this paper assignment, you will be required to answer the following central question: drawing on course readings (attached fields), class lectures, and section discussions, how would you define “Asian American” as a category of social difference? That is, rather than describing “Asian American” as a homogenous or fixed biological construct, in what ways might we approach this term as a social category (re)produced over time—and one that is constituted by differences, tensions, and divergence? How have meanings affixed to “Asian American” shifted across time—and what roles have legislative policies, practices, and popular culture informed this term? Please be specific and provide concrete examples.
