Saving Face: The Emotional Costs of the Asian Immigrant Family Myth (Families in Focus)

Saving Face: The Emotional Costs of the Asian

Tiger Mom. Asian patriarchy. Model minority children. Generation gap. The many images used to describe the prototypical Asian family have given rise to two versions of the Asian immigrant family myth. The first celebrates Asian families for upholding the traditional heteronormative ideal of the “normal (white) American family” based on a hard-working male breadwinner and a devoted wife and mother who raises obedient children. The other demonizes Asian families around these very same cultural values by highlighting the dangers of excessive parenting, oppressive hierarchies, and emotionless pragmatism in Asian cultures. Saving Face cuts through these myths, offering a more nuanced portrait of Asian immigrant families in a changing world as recalled by the people who lived them first-hand: the grown children of Chinese and Korean immigrants. Drawing on extensive interviews, sociologist Angie Y. Chung examines how these second-generation children negotiate the complex and conflicted feelings they have toward their family responsibilities and upbringing. Although they know little about their parents’ lives, she reveals how Korean and Chinese Americans assemble fragments of their childhood memories, kinship narratives, and racial myths to make sense of their family experiences. ...

The Family Tree: The Branches

The Family Tree: The

The Family Tree: The Branches is the second installment of a three-part, stand-alone album series that chronicles a fictitious, and sometimes otherworldly, 19th century family. Certain instrumentation and melodies that represent a "family member" will reappear in this album as a continuation of his/her story or that of his/her descendent. As such, Ben Cooper, aka Radical Face limits his songwriting to century instruments from the 1800s piano, acoustic guitar, floor torn and haunting vocal harmonies. A natural storyteller, Cooper turns fiction into music.

Futureface: A Family Mystery, an Epic Quest, and the Secret to Belonging

Futureface: A Family Mystery, an Epic Quest, and

An acclaimed journalist travels the globe to solve the mystery of her ancestry, confronting the question at the heart of the American experience of immigration, race, and identity: Who are my people?“A thoughtful, beautiful meditation on what makes us who we are . . . and the values and ideals that bind us together as Americans.”—Barack Obama“A rich and revealing memoir . . . Futureface raises urgent questions having to do with history and complicity.”—The New York Times The daughter of a Burmese mother and a white American father, Alex Wagner grew up thinking of herself as a “futureface”—an avatar of a mixed-race future when all races would merge into a brown singularity. But when one family mystery leads to another, Wagner’s post-racial ideals fray as she becomes obsessed with the specifics of her own family’s racial and ethnic history. Drawn into the wild world of ancestry, she embarks upon a quest around the world—and into her own DNA—to answer the ultimate questions of who she really is and where she belongs. The journey takes her from Burma to Luxembourg, from ruined colonial capitals with records written on banana leaves to Mormon databases, genetic labs, and the rest of the twenty-first-century genealogy complex. But soon she begins to grapple ...
