CSUS Professor Dana Nakano speaks on Japanese American Identity, November 16th at 4:10pm, Gym 114

MA AAS Alumni &  Assistant Professor Dana Y. Nakano will be presenting, "Still Not White: The Persistent Role of Race in Later Generation Japanese American Identity and Community Formation,"   on Monday, November 16, 2015 from 4:10 - 5:15pm in Gym 114

Dr.  Nakano discusses how the overall shift in ethnic and generational
demographics among Asian Americans has led later generation Japanese
Americans to reify their sense of ethnic community and identity while
simultaneously expanding their conceptions of self in panethnic terms. Dr.
Nakano is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at California State University,
Stanislaus. His research focuses on the intersections of race, immigration, and
politics and is currently working on a book manuscript on this subject titled Racial
Uniform: Dilemmas of Assimilation and Belonging in Later Generation Japanese
American Citizenship.
