Asian American Studies (AAS) is an interdisciplinary and comparative field that explores the histories, cultures, and experiences of people of Asian descent in the United States. As an integral component of the Center for Ethnic Studies, the program focuses on the diversity of Asian American communities and cultural practices; develops intersectional approaches to the study of identity, power, and resistance; and considers a range of issues—such as immigration, citizenship, globalization, and imperialism—central to a critical understanding of our contemporary world. The AAS program sponsors research workshops and cultural events, and offers an undergraduate minor that draws courses from various departments.
