FALL 2013 – AMS 354: Asian Americans and Public History/Memory

August 21, 2013 § Leave a comment

This upcoming semester, visiting professor Franklin Odo ’61 *75 will be teaching a seminar primarily focusing on two events, the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 and Japanese American Internment during World War II, and the movements for redress of these events that emerged in subsequent decades. The course further discusses how legislation and the government response to these redress movements affected the targeted communities.

Prof. Franklin Odo is the founding director of the Asian Pacific American Program at the Smithsonian Institute and a prominent Asian American Studies activist. He co-edited Roots: An Asian American Reader, the main text used in the earliest Asian American Studies courses in the 1970s. Prof. Odo received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Association for Asian American Studies in 2012. In the 1990s, Prof. Odo was a visiting professor at Princeton and gave a talk sponsored by AASA and Whig-Clio in March, 2013.

This post is unfortunately late, but those interested still have a chance to sign up in September! Check out more details about the course at the Registrar’s website here.
