Synopsis: Kang explores cultural citizenship and immigrant community identity development in the International District (ID) of Seattle, WA. She investigates the particular social, political, and historical contexts within which a "multi-ethnic Asian American community" identity arose. She finds that the ID as a subject is produced and sustained not through a singular identity but through multiple and contingent discourses of history, contribution, and change. Similarly, it is constructed through a constant processes of engagement, contestation and negotiation between the community and the various larger social and political structures of society, as well as among community members. The results suggest that it may be possible for immigrant subjects to alter the discourses that constitute them by generating counter-discourses.

About the Author: Hye-Kyung Kang is Assistant Professor at Smith College School for Social Work. She received her MSW and Ph.D. from the University of Washington School of Social Work. Her research interests include cultural citizenship, immigrant communities, transnational migration, and immigrant and refugee social and mental health. She is currently collaborating on a study comparing Asian and Latino immigrant history and citizenship.
