Took this class last quarter and enjoyed every bit of it. His lectures go by very fast because of all the interesting information he talks about, and he often repeats himself to make sure people have enough time to write everything down. The assigned readings are great, and the essays, though somewhat unclear, are very manageable. This is one of those classes where effort and attentiveness will get you to actually give a damn about the lecture material. I always looked forward to attending this class (though I missed the Gojira screenings) and honestly wish I could take this class again.

My TA was Christian Gella; try and take it with him if you can!

I took this class W19, saw it had no reviews and I have to do Keith justice. He's an amazing professor. SO engaging. He took time every single lecture to go around and have people share how their week was going, make any announcements, etc. It was such a supportive academic environment and I really enjoyed going to class and discussion.

From what I can recall:
Participation (in discussion, don't remember how much it was worth)
3 essays (2/3pg, 5/6 pg, and final 12 pg research paper)
Each paper is graded 20% draft and 80% final (although draft is graded on P/NP basis)
Final (multiple choice + essays)

I had Paul Mendoza as my TA. A true king. He was so real, down to earth, and inspired me to become a better writer. I feel like I learned a lot from this class, not only about Asian American history, but about intersectionality and how a lot of these issues are presenting themselves in our lives today. It was a refreshing course, filled with honesty and built-in support. I look forward to taking a class with him again!

I'm sorry I can't remember the course number-it was in 2010 when I had Keith's class. However, I couldn't believe these reviews so I had to write on of my own. Keith was absolutely one of the most interesting professors I had at UCLA. He is very passionate about the subjects he teaches and maybve the two students who posted here could care less about the subject. I had two classes with Keith-both of which were so interesting and fun. Everyone in the class was encouraged to speak up, ask questions, and really think about what it means to be a Pacific Islander. He is very passionate about the subject of empire and colonialism in the pacific and doesn't mince words about how he feels. His lectures are very fact filled and you have to be paying attention-there is no goofing off or sleeping in his lectures or you will suffer on the exams. His was always available at office hours for help and I was bummed out when he left for a year of research because I wanted to continue taking his classes. He is back now-but I have graduated already. Maybe these two students are used to just basically showing up to a class and sleeping through the lecture-but you can't do that in Keiths classes-I would tell anyone interested in AAS or PI studies that his class is a must take!

Keith is, hands down, one of the best professors I have taken at UCLA! At the beginning of class, we take the time to talk about any announcements, birthdays, events happening, how people are doing before going into the actual work for the day. Personally, I loved the collaborative nature of the class. From the beginning, we split off into groups of three and we have to do attend class, turn in reaction papers, and submit the final together! The group work makes the entire class so much more easier. Furthermore, half the class is spent watching a film and then the second half is to talk about the discussion questions we posed in our reaction paper. With meeting once a week and Keith having to cancel a class to go to a conference, we only met eight times. I highly recommend this class for people who want to get to know more about Pacific Islander studies through a cinema!

Keith is the best professor ever! I went on his guam summer travel study and he is the funniest person I ever met. He feels more like an uncle than a professor and he does a lot to cultivate relationships with his students. All of his lectures are so interesting and engaging and he likes to draw on his own personal experiences. I wish I could take every single class with him!!!! He is AMAZING!!
