EDUC 401 B: Asian Critical Race Theory

In this seminar, we will explore Asian Critical Race Theory, focusing specifically on the formation of Asianness, how Asians are racialized, and the self-determination of Asian folx. In particular, we will examine historical and current politics associated with Asian identities in a local US context, while acknowledging the global interconnections. With this theoretical, historical, and practical foundation, we will strategize about our personal roles and responsibilities within social justice and solidarity work that strives toward liberation for our own and other communities.


For EDUC 401 seminars, the number of credits a student receives depends on the number of tutoring hours completed in addition to seminar attendance. Seminars are Credit/No Credit, and are I&S credits. Credit and tutoring requirements are as follows:

  • 1-3 credits*: 20 hours of tutoring over the quarter
  • 4 credits: 40 hours of tutoring over the quarter
  • 5 credits: 60 hours of tutoring over the quarter
  • 6 credits**: 80 hours of tutoring over the quarter

A student may opt to register for 1 or 2 credits if it means avoiding an additional registration fee. ** If a student would like to register for more than 6 credits, they should email riverways@uw.edu with the request.

Current EDUC 401 Students: Need to change the number of credits for your seminar? Riverways staff can help you do this for free. Please email riverways@uw.edu before Friday of Week 7.
