Through music, learn the lesser-known stories about why Asians migrated to the U.S. and their experiences here. The topics discussed include naturalization laws, refugees, and transnational adoption.

Music of Asian America Research Center executive director and co-founder Eric Hung will preview a podcast series, Who’s an Immigrant?, that he is producing for the organization.  In six episodes, this timely series complicates the dominant narrative about Asian immigration, which focuses on choice, assimilation and the notion of Asians as “model minorities.”  He will preview three excerpts:  one about immigration before naturalization was possible for Asians, one about Cambodian American refugees, and one about Korean American adoptees. 

Event co-sponsored by the University of Maryland College of Information Studies
