Title: Can Korean Twinkies and FOBs be Friends?
Author(s): AAS346 07-13
Subject(s): Ethnicity Korean Korean American Asian Interaction AAS346 F07
Abstract: My research is focused on the interaction between Korean Twinkies and FOBs in the campus. From the reading and observations, I realized the lack of interaction between these two groups. Therefore, I decided to find out the reasons of this particular incident and if there are any obstacles these two groups have hard time interaction with each other. From the observation and interviews, the reason that these two groups do not hang out much is not because of the language barriers but because of the uncomfortable atmosphere that they feel in each group.

Series/Report: AAS 346, Asian American Youth, Prof. Soo Ah Kwon: This course explores the ways that second-generation Asian and Pacific Islander (API) youth are actively shaping the U.S. landscape in terms of identity formation, youth cultural production, education, organizing, and community formations. These experiences are examined within larger historical, economic, racial, social and political forces in the United States. Rather than approach the study of youth through a developmental psychological model of adolescence, this course will examine youth as a culturally specific social formation. We will engage with texts that draw from different academic disciplines to provide us with theoretical, historical, and ethnographic perspectives of young people. We will also compare and situate the unique (and not so unique) experiences of API youth with young people of different racial and ethnic backgrounds. The course syllabus is available at: www.eui.uiuc.edu/docs/syllabi/AAS346F07.doc
