Module: Early Asian Immigration

Robert Stevenson, Professor of Art, Art History, and Humanities

This curricular unit is designed to take the study of Asian culture to the local level. Students will explore the contributions of Asian immigrants to California’s Central Valley through early photography in The California Museum of Oakland’s online archive, historical resources from the University of California at Berkeley’s Bancroft Library, and the journalistic writings of John Steinbeck, Article VI of The Harvest Gypsies. Students will draw comparisons and contrasts with their previous understanding of the local contributions of the Central Valley’s Asian community as well as their understanding of immigrant labor within agriculture in the Central Valley.
