Min Zhou - Sociolgy Professor - UCLA
As a founding chair of UCLA's Department of Asian American Studies, Sociology Professor Min Zhou studies the nature of transnational migration and assimilation in the lives of Asian Americans in the United States. In the following interviews, Professor Zhou explores the nature of the networked culture created by early Chinese immigrants through Family Associations and the lessons that this experience sheds on contemporary migration.
The Social Role of Family Associations
"Chinese pioneers create transnational networked cultures through Family Associations."
Changes in Chinese Immigration
"A short history of Chinese immigration."
"Min Zhou shares how changes occurring in China are translated into the Chinese communities in Los Angeles and the hybrid blends of citizens living in these communities."
The Role of Chinese Women
"Min Zhou explains the differences and impact of women in communities in early Chinatown."
After the screening, KCET Cinema Series host Pete Hammond conversed with director Fernando Ferreira Meirelles (City of Gold), and writer Anthony McCarten.
