Transnational Chinese Villagers:
NY's Fuzhounese Immigrants
Build a Global Community
by Ken Guest

[October 29, 2004]
 

 

Over the past twenty years Fuzhounese immigrants have transformed the face of New York’s Chinatown, supplanting the Cantonese as Chinatown’s largest ethnic Chinese community and vying for leadership in the area’s economics, politics, social life, and even language use. Drawing upon ongoing field research in New York and Fuzhou, this lecture will explore the emergence of a Chinese transnational village and its implications for immigrant incorporation in the US and local village life in China.
