October 25, 2018 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
A widely cited anthropologist of education, Stacey Lee is known nationally and internationally for her cutting-edge research on the educational experiences and academic achievement of two growing student populations: im/migrants and Asian Americans. Lee is the author/editor of six books and more than 30 journal articles, including the best known book Unraveling the Model Minority Stereotype: Listening to Asian American Youth.
Lee has been working on two research projects over the last few years. One project focuses on the formal and informal educational experiences of Hmong youth. The other project is on the educational experiences of Chinese Americans who grew up and went to school in the Mississippi Delta during Jim Crow through the Civil Rights Movement. Her one-hour presentation will highlight the writing project of Chinese Americans in Mississippi Delta during Jim Crow through Civil Rights Movement.
