There is a critical mass of scholarship around the Pacific and its rims in the English Department at UC Santa Barbara this quarter, as the following global studies oriented classes are being offered this Winter Quarter:

Anne Cong-Huyen – “The Literature and Media of Asian American Transnationalisms”

Yunte Huang – “Transpacific Literature”

Chris Newfield – “Global California”

The Transpacifics Roundtable will bring together these departmental interests to think critically about Asian/American Transnationalisms in a global context. The Hemispheric South/s Research Initiative thus seeks to promote and sustain the synergy and verve around teaching and research in race, ethnicity, and transnational flows of bodies, capital, and ideas by fostering ongoing collegial conversation across campus.

Students, faculty, and staff are welcome - undergraduates in particular are encouraged to learn about these course offerings before enrollment ends on January 28. Refreshments will be provided. Please join us!
