Join the Department of Asian American Studies in celebrating the release of “Korean American Families in Immigrant America: How Teens and Parents Navigate Race.” This book is the product of years of cooperative research between the late Dr. Nancy Abelmann, a founding member of the Department of Asian American Studies at the University of Illinois, and NYU Professor of Psychology Sumie Okazaki.
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.
