Second-Generation ImmigrantsUnderstanding Acculturation and De-acculturation of Second-Generation Immigrants: A Status Model

Tuesday, April 11th, 2006
12:00 -1:00 p.m., Jonas Board Room (Please note room change)

Presenter: Syed Ali (Sociology)

Is the acculturation of the children of immigrant families into mainstream culture inevitable and irreversible?

Most studies of acculturation assume that it is. In his presentation, Prof. Ali will counter this assumption by observing a variety of patterns of assimilation among second generation immigrants and will offer his own theory to account for these patterns.

Refreshments will be served. For further information, please contact Gladys Schrynemakers (X1001) or William Burgos (X1094).
