The course will examine the identities and cultures of the Korean immigrants and the challenges they have faced in the multicultural society of the United States. It will seek to illuminate what past and present struggles can teach us about the future of the Korean community in Hawai‘i as well as in the nation at large.

Guest speakers, field trips, video exhibitions, and discussions will all be part of the course content.
