Diaspora and Transnationalism
AMST 212 SP
This seminar is a part of a four-year project supported by the Freeman Asian/Asian American Initiative grant to further develop the study of Asia and the Asian diaspora at Wesleyan University. This seminar will explore
inter-related themes of diaspora and transnationalism in the Asia Pacific. It is now clear that Asian migrants form diasporic networks and engage in transnational practices and relationships that may ebb and flow, but
to persist over time and space. How migrants make their own transnational histories, and how historians construct diasporic narratives will be examined in depth through newly published case studies that represent the
of Asian experiences across the Americas and across the Pacific.
