In addition, you need to demonstrate knowledge of readings, included in your course readers (posted on Canvas) that are relevant to the exam questions you are addressing. Note: it is your responsibility and part of your exam to figure out which assigned readings are relevant to the exam question that you have chosen to answer.1. Drawing from the assigned readings, lectures, in-class discussions and your own critical perspective, please discuss why Asians and Asian American in the United States are situated “in-between”? Define what is this “in betweeness” means in racial and political terms? What are the political advantageous and disadvantages in occupying an “in-between” position?Note: This question is designed to solicit your own thoughts and perspective on the “in-between” subject position and you thus you need to go beyond what I have said in my lecture and in-class discussion. Please cite the relevant readings related to this particular question from your course reader.2. Drawing from in-class discussions, assigned readings and lectures please discuss one particular scene in Gail Dolgina and Vicente Franco’s film, Daughter from Danang (2002) when Heidi’s birth mother and her siblings asked for her financial help (and one other relevant scene in the film that you deem relevant to your argument). Do you think that both Heidi’s birth mother and her siblings in Vietnam have made an unfair demand when they asked her to support her mother financially? Do you think Heidi is running away from responsibility as a Vietnamese-American daughter? Are these two women and by extension women in Vietnamese society in general are asked to sacrifice as mother and daughter for the well being of the Nation? What the role do men played in the family Note: Your essay must have a thesis statement. For example, “In this essay I argue that…” In brief, please do not give us a synopsis of the film or a report, 3 that is a story. Also please be sure to cite two relevant assigned readings on adoptions in your course reader.

Compare and contrast how they both made use of photographs from the Vietnam-American War in their art. How do they address this issue of conflict and reconciliation in the post Vietnam-American war in their art? Are they diasporic or Vietnamese-American artists? Which one of these two artists shows more “Americaness” in their art? How do you define “Americaness”? If so, what are the visual markers of Americaness in their art? Note: Please cite assigned readings related to this question from your course reader.For more information on Aesthetic Concepts check on: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aesthetics
