Browse Globalization and the University by Series/Report "AAS 199, Asian American Chicago, Prof. Junaid Rana: The city of Chicago is home to many Asian Americans defined broadly from those that hail from East Asia to South Asia to West Asia. In this course, students examine the multiplicity of the Asian American experience through specific communities and their history in Chicago. By centering on neighborhoods and communities we look at the populations that constitute places like Chinatown, Koreatown, and Devon Street. Expanding our definitions of the city based on the North side, South side, West Side, etc., and the city and the suburbs, students explore the relationship of Asian Americans across definitions of an imagined Chicago and Chicagoland. The course material cover a wide array of topics to examine the changing contours of Asian American communities such as housing, migration, segregation, and racialization. Further this course examines the relationship of Asian Americans in relationship to the historically racialized groups in Chicago. Each student in this class is part of an important research project to document the role of the U of I in student life and the communities they come from.
