|Title:||CY Students: Economic Desparity in the Formation of Racial Identity|
Push Pull migration
|Abstract:||This project investigates whether racial identity within the Korean international student community is influenced by factors that had lead them to study in the United States. The aspect of racial identity being investigated focuses on individual’s perception of acceptance into various social networks on the University of Illinois campus. The author seeks to answer the following questions: How do people define their identity? How does appearance, nationality, ethnicity, and environment affect identity? Why do some CY students socialize only with the CY social networks while other CY students extend into main stream American social networks? How does economics factor into racial identity and does the “Push-Pull theory of migration” influence identity?|
