ASAM 187 AA - Arts, Activism, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders

The participatory course analyzes the transformative power and potential of art within the context of Asian American social movements seeking transformative social and political changes.  The course will put students directly into contact with the performance and display of Asian American art events, and seek to integrate their active participation in these events as a means to develop both creative outlets as well as critical thinking. Individual and class projects will include the production of creative works, publications or workshops, and conferences.
