Capstone Seminar: Globalization: Asia and Asian America

HISTORY 454S

"Globalization": a shorthand for describing the period of extraordinary change that we are living through, our lives, and our worlds as defined by global connections, from the internet technologies and rapid mass communication to issues of mobilization for social justice. This course focuses on two main themes: global moments of common struggle against racism in Asian, Asian American, and African American contexts, and global manufacture and the ways in which the microprocessor chip technology has come to bind Asia, Africa, and America, with a special focus on women and Asian Americans in the IT sector.
