Anne A. Cheng
Asian American Literature and Cultures
ENG 224 / AMS 304 / AAS 224

This course studies the relationship between law and literature by focusing on the roles that Asian Americans played in US constitutional history. We will examine cases involving Asian Americans that reflect on American policies on citizenship, immigration, civil rights, human rights, and foreign policy, and we will explore novels, plays, poems, and films that respond to these cases. We will also consider the invisible ways in which the law shapes our every day lives: how it structures our feelings, bodies, spaces, and the sense of the quotidian.
