Julie J. Park is Assistant Professor of Education at University of Maryland, with research interests in racial diversity and equity in higher education, religion, Asian American college students, affirmative action and college admissions, social and cultural capital. She is looking for Asian Americans that would be interviewed for this project below:
Researchers at the University of Maryland, College Park are interested in learning how “second gen” Korean and Chinese American parents approach education and child-rearing for their “third gen” children. We are looking for people who fit the following criteria to participate in a one-time interview:
- Your parents are immigrants and you were born in the U.S. or immigrated before age 7
- You are of Korean or Chinese descent
- You have at least one child over the age of 6
- You reside in the DC metro (DC/MD/VA) or LA/OC area.
We’d like to understand your experiences as a parent, your memories of your own experiences with education, and reflections on education in the Asian American community. You will receive a $10 gift card for participating in an hour long interview. If you are open to being interviewed and/or have questions, please contact Assistant Professor Julie Park at [email protected]. Thank you!
(Editor’s note: I personally didn’t qualify for the research, since I immigrated to the U.S. at age 8. I did get 3 out of 4..)
