From "Opium War" to "War on Drugs":
Asian Americans' Transcultural Journey

by
Jianguo Ji

[March 12, 2004]
 

 

The lecture will focus on the cultural-psychological aspect of Asian Americans' experiences. Both the international context for their early emigration and the American cultural environment for their acculturation process will be examined (adaptation = selective process vs. unconditional assimilation). The interrelatedness between the two larger contexts will be analyzed to interpret the behavioral patterns that underlie the Asian Americans' efforts to construct a citizenship and build an identity.
