Project #88667 - Asian American study paper

I have already done with my rough draft. What do I need is revise the rough draft based on the suggestions given by my classmates. 

The following materials are the essay prompt given by the professor:

MIDTERM PREP & GUIDELINES: Racial Conflict

Questions/Goals for This Week:

  1. Utilize the following readings and past class materials for our midterm!

 

Required Readings: 

 

 

Recommended Reading:

 

The readings sets for the next two weeks have been combined (and I've also reduced some of the readings from what's listed on the syllabus), because they are relevant for the midterm. The midterm involves a multistage writiing process: you will brainstorm/explore an idea (using Forum Discussion #6), submit a rough draft, peer review your classmates' essays; revise; and submit a final draft via Turnitin. 

The readings revolve around the idea of racial hegemony and conflict that are not only tied to Asian American experiences but also are at the forefront of discussions today, especially in the last year with more movement around police violence in black communities. The Winant article provides some theoretical context to understand the functioning of racism in the 21st century, Zia's piece examines the issue of anti-Asian violence in historical context, and the other articles talk about Ferguson and the Black Lives Matter movements. Read ALL the pieces before you begin working on the discussion prompt and preparing for the midterm. With that said:

MIDTERM GUIDELINES

The primary reading for the midterm is Winant's "Racism: From Domination to Hegemony." The minimum word count for the midterm is 1,500 to 1,800 words. Failure to meet the word count will result in grade penalties. Utilize the readings listed above to make your points, but you are allowed and encouraged to use outside sources (as well as past readings). However, the foundation for your essay must be based on understanding Winant and the readings for this week. It is up to you to decide how you want to utilize these articles. I will not set a limit of how many articles you need to use... unless people keep asking me. Use your own judgement, but it should be sufficient. (TIP: Using only one article = not sufficient)

 

PROMPT: Using your understanding of Winant, this weeks' readings, and our past discussions of Asian American communities, assess Winant's position on how racism operates today through hegemony (NOT domination). How is his idea of racial hegemony illustrated in terms of the discourse that we have seen around Ferguson, police brutality, and the Black Lives Matter movements? How are Asian Americans implicated within the racial hegemony, and what actions do you think can be taken to address underlying social issues? Or, are Winant's assessments in need of reconceptualization. If so, how? Your paper must have a clear argument and must use specific examples from readings or outside sources. Include proper citations and works cited page in an MLA format.
