You are invited to join a book talk by Sumie Okazaki.
Korean American Families in Immigrant America: How Teens and Parents Navigate Race is a co-authored book, the product of years of collaborative research between Sumie Okazaki, a former faculty member in the Department of Psychology at the University of Illinois, and the late Nancy Abelmann, Harry E. Preble Professor of Anthropology, Asian American Studies, and East Asian Languages and Cultures and former Associate Vice Chancellor for Research-Humanities, Arts, and Related Fields.
Through surveying hundreds of Korean American immigrant teens and parents and focusing on the personal stories of five immigrant families, Abelmann and Okazaki examine and refute the stereotypes associated with intergenerational dynamics in Asian American families and explore the challenges immigrant families face as they strive for successful lives in America.
Free and open to the public.
