The law is all around us, but what about justice? What is justice? What kind of justice are we entitled to? Together we will explore the concepts, framework, systems and practices which comprise what justice is, with an emphasis on the perspective of the wrongfully accused. Through the use of drama, film, case studies, media analysis, and other sources, we will consider the factors which shape our personal views of what justice is, decide how much these views really matter, and examine the many factors that determine how systems of justice impact society on various levels.

This course examines Asian American history and experience through the lens of theatre and performance. These performances are often critical sites where members of the community preserve their cultural legacies and negotiate American racial politics. By discussing representative works by Asian American playwrights, performance artists, and filmmakers, we will cover the following topics: key events in Asian American history, immigration and citizenship; identity and community formation, intersectionality of race, gender, and sexuality; generational gaps in Asian American culture; trauma and memory; U.S. imperialism and social justice
