Book talk: Trespassers? Asian Americans and the Battle for Suburbia
Start Date: 11/15/2017Start Time: 4:30 PM
End Date: 11/15/2017End Time: 6:00 PM

Event Description:
Over the last few decades, California’s Silicon Valley has become not only the world’s technological epicenter, but also one of the fastest growing, and most racially and ethnically diverse regions
in the U.S Spurred by the rise of tech giants like Google and Facebook, the region has attracted diverse, highly-educated immigrants from across the globe, particularly Asia. These
migrants have built their new lives among the region’s many predominately white, middle-class suburbs. Trespassers? explores the dreams and struggles of Asian Americans as they have made their homes in Silicon Valley suburbia, and the tensions that have often emerged over the region’s changing character.

SJSU's Institute for Metropolitan Studies invites you to join Dr. Willow Lung-Amam as she discusses her new book on the role of immigrants in the changing urban landscape and their fight for inclusion within the suburban American Dream.
