Negotiating Ethnicity: Second-Generation South Asian Americans Traverse a Transnational World by Bandana Purkayastha [in AsianWeek]

Negotiating EthnicityA careful examination of 48 second-generation South Asian Americans whose parents arrived from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Nepal during 1965 and the mid-1980s. Through personal stories and sociological context, Purkayastha explores how this second generation projects self-identification in a world where they are clearly not white, yet often not Asian enough.
