As a panethnicty, Asian Americans are brought together by a linguistic diversity that defies mainstream monolingual paradigms. To many Asian Americans, various degrees of exposures to two or more languages create a translingual dimension in identity formation. By problematizing monolingual paradigms and adopting multi-/translingual conceptual frameworks, this course explores how crossings between languages shape Asian American identities and representations. (Offered occasionally.)
