From Tiger Mom to Jeremy Lin: Asian Americans and Race Relations (SOCIOL 490S.1.03)
Spring 2013, Wed/Fri, 3:05-4:20 PM, Soc/Psy 331
Instructor: Inseo Son
This course takes a sociological approach to examine the experiences of Asian Americans
as a racial minority group, distinct from both whites and other minority groups.
We explore multiple facets of Asian American lives, including immigration patterns,
intergenerational mobility, identity construction, and discrimination, and how these are
shaped by race/ethnicity, immigration policy, and gender. The course first critically
reviews sociological literature on Asian Americans and, second, students are able to
conduct their own research using content analysis, field observation, etc.
