With reference to my previous post on getting back to work at Northwestern after a great break in Richmond, here are the syllabi for my two classes this quarter. One is a course I’ve already taught on Asian American religions, but I’ve made it even more idiosyncratic than last time by adding Gary Okihiro’s Island World. I like to teach from authors who don’t think that they’re doing ‘Asian American religions’ because I think that Asian American religious studies is more mainstream than most people make it out to be.

The second is a new course on Global Chinatowns. At first I wanted it to be about all theory. With objections from my wife and friends, I’ve made it more about practice. It’s a new course, and in a seminar style too, so I’m excited.
