Immigration and Transformation of Chinese America: Diasporic development from Chinatown to Chinese Ethnoburb in Metropolitan Los Angeles

Uptown Campus
Hebert Hall 201

Immigration has transformed Chinese America. Tracing the development from Chinatown to Chinese ethnoburb in metropolitan Los Angeles, Dr. Min Zhou examines how diasporic formation and transformation are shaped; how ethnic communities can be platforms that both provide alternative paths to social mobility and also reproduce social inequality; and how long-standing racial stereotyping, including the seemingly positive “model minority” stereotype, hampers Chinese American life.

Dr. Min Zhou is a Distinguished Professor of Sociology and Asian American Studies, Walter and Shirley Wang Endowed Chair in US-China Relations and Communications, and Director of the Asia Pacific Center at the University of California, Los Angeles. She has published widely in the areas of migration & development, race and ethnicity, Chinese diaspora, and the sociology of Asia and Asian America, including the award-winning book The Asian American Achievement Paradox.
