Generations After: Making the Refugee Family and the Intergenerational Memory of the Vietnam War
This project traces the role of family in the racialization of Vietnamese refugees and the history of the Vietnam War. Vietnamese refugees arriving in 1975 are the most studied population in the sociology of immigration, providing significant data for theorists of assimilation to assess the rate and success of the Vietnamese as new Americans. This project analyzes the work that family does in sociology of immigration and second-generation literatures, as competing knowledge projects about the history and legacy of the war.
