Introduction to Asian American Studies

With the absence of Asian American Studies in higher education institutions throughout the South, a group of 7 Davidson College students of various interests united to create this course titled “Introduction to Asian American Studies” for Spring 2016. Davidson College is but one example of an institution with this education deficit. Part of the course involves designing this website as a pilot for other students interested in Asian American Studies. We hope that this website will broaden Davidson’s curriculum and that of higher education. If you want to learn more about any individual members, click on their name!
