講義概要 【副題】
Japanese American Writers: Toshio Mori's "Yokohama, California"

【授業概要】
This course will combine lecture and student-teacher discussion.
The course will begin with an overview of the history of Japanese immigration to the United States and particularly to Japanese settlement in California. We will then examine the development of the Nikkei communities in California and life in these communities. We will then read Toshio Mori's "Yokohama, California," concentrating on what these stories reveal about life in these communities and how these Nikei Americans saw themselves.

【到達目標】
The purpose of this course is to introduce the students to the writing of Toshio Mori, an American fiction writer of Japanese descent. By reading Mori's stories we will gain insights into life in the the Japanese American communities of central California in the pre-war years of the 1930s. Hopefully we will gains insights into how these people understood themselves and what it meant to them to be Americans.
