Guest Speaker: Sumie Okazaki, Ph.D.
Dr. Sumie Okazaki is Professor of Applied Psychology at New York University Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development. She conducts research on the ways that immigration, sociocultural change, and racialization shape the psychological experiences of Asian and Asian American adolescents, emerging adults, and parents within local and transnational contexts. With colleagues in anthropology, sociology, education, and developmental psychology as well as community partners, she has ongoing research projects on urban Asian American and immigrant young adults in New York City; Chinese parents and adolescents in Shanghai and Nanjing, China; and current and former Korean early study abroad students in New York City, the Philippines, and Seoul, South Korea. She was the President of Asian American Psychological Association (2013-2015) and an Associate Editor of the journal Cultural Diversity and Ethnic Minority Psychology (2004-2011). She is the past recipient of W.T. Grant Foundation Distinguished Fellowship. She received her doctorate in psychology from UCLA in 1994 and has taught in the psychology departments and Asian American Studies programs at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign prior to her current appointment at NYU.
Topic: Korean American Families in Immigrant America
This co-authored book is the product of years of collaborative research between Sumie Okazaki, Professor of Applied Psychology at NYU Steinhardt, and the late Nancy Abelmann, Harry E. Preble Professor of Anthropology, Asian American Studies, and East Asian Languages and Cultures at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. This book contributes a rare ethnography of family life, following them through the transition from teenagers into young adults, to a field that has largely considered the immigrant and second generation in isolation from one another. Combining qualitative and quantitative methods and focusing on both generations, this book makes the case for delving more deeply into the ideas of immigrant parents and their teens about raising children and growing up in America – ideas that defy easy classification as “Korean” or “American.” Professor Okazaki will read a selection from the book and share the lessons learned from this deeply personal work.
