Book Release Party

Date:
Tuesday, August 27, 2013 6:30 PM

Location:
KCS Auditorium (뉴욕한인봉사센터 강당), 35-56 159th Street, Flushing, NY 11358

Details:
A book release party at Korean Community Services (KCS) for Koreans in North America: Their Twenty-First Century Experiences
 
The book was edited by our Director, Pyong Gap Min. This edited anthology is the only book that covers several different topics on Korean Americans and Korean Canadians comprehensively. The early chapters provide systematic statistical data on Korean immigration and settlement patterns and changes in Korean immigrant business patterns in the twenty-first century. It also includes chapters that examine Korean immigrants' religious practices, second-generation Korean ethnic identity, and wives of international students, as well as two chapters on Korean Canadians.
 
8월 27일 (화) KCS 강당에서 민병갑 교수의 편저인 "Koreans in North America: Their Twenty-First Century Experiences (북미주 한인: 그들의 21세기 경험)"의 출판기념회가 개최됩니다.
이 책에는 북미주 한인의 이민과 정착 형태, 사업체 유형, 사회∙문화 및 종교 활동, 기러기 가족, 한인 2세의 정체성 등 다양한 주제의 이민 관련 자료가 자세히 담겨있는데, 지금까지 출판된 다른 이민 관련 서적들과는 다르게 다양한 이민 관련 자료를 한 권의 책을 통해 통합적으로 살펴볼 수 있다는 점에서 큰 차이점이 있습니다.
아울러, 딱딱한 학술서적이 아닌, 대중적으로 쉽게 쓰여진 만큼 누구나 한인 이민자의 역사와 모습을 한눈에 살펴볼 수 있는 유일한 책입니다.

행사 당일에는 책의 내용에 대한 간단한 소개와 함께 시중에서 구입하는 것보다도 훨씬 저렴한 가격 ($20)으로 책을 구매할 수 있는 특별한 기회가 마련될 예정입니다. 관심있는 분들의 많은 참석 바랍니다.
