Course Description This course examines the "transpacific" as a site and a theoretical frame for understanding the role that migration and imperialism have played in the making of the modern world.  We will study how different national and imperial formations, their institutions, and their ideologies shaped networks of migration that crossed the Pacific and vice versa.  Readings will draw from fields as diverse as North American history, East Asian history, indigenous studies, and ethnic and cultural studies to explore themes including indigeneity, public health and science, borderlands, settler colonialism, diaspora, militarism, and cross-cultural intimacies.
