Topic: Ethnic Attachment among NYC Second-generation Korean High-school Students
           and Its Mechanisms
 
Presenters: Pyong Gap Min, professor at Queens College
                   Audrey Joo, student at Boston University 

This lecture will focus on ethnic attachment among second-generation Korean-American high school students in the metro New York area by examining Korean-language usage, consumption of Korean media (movies, TV shows, music), consumption of Korean food, ethnic friend networks, ethnic identity, and loyalty to the homeland. Audrey Joo and one of her friends, Soo Jin Lee, examined these indicators of ethnic attachment using a survey of 179 second-generation Korean-American high-school students who were interviewed via phone, email, and personal interviews. Joo and Lee conducted all of the interviews and collected all of the data between November 2008 and March 2009. Audrey Joo, a second-generation Korean American, will share her personal experiences at the lecture, in addition to presenting some of her data and findings.
 
At a time when many second-generation Korean-American adults are emerging in the community, studying second-generation Korean Americans is of the utmost importance. In order for the entire Korean-American community to succeed in the United States, it is crucial to examine and analyze the experiences of what is largely the first U.S.-born generation of Koreans. The lecture will consist of two parts: (1) An examination of levels of ethnic attachment among the Korean-American high school students based on results of the survey, and (2) An examination of the mechanisms that have made the levels of ethnic attachment possible.

We hope that you will be able to attend this interesting lecture, and we look forward to organizing many more insightful lectures in 2014.
 
안녕하십니까? 2014년 갑오년 새해가 다가오고 있습니다. 2013년 한 해 동안 재외한인사회연구소의 정기 세미나에 참여해주신 모든 분들께 감사드립니다. 2014년에도 유익하고 알찬 강연이 준비되어 있으니 많은 관심 부탁드리겠습니다.
 
새해의 첫 강연은 2014년 1월 7일 (화) KCS 강당에서 “Ethnic Attachment among NYC Second-generation Korean High-school Students and Its Mechanisms (민병갑/Audrey Joo)” 라는 주제로 개최될 예정입니다. 이번 강연에서는 한인 2세의 한국음식과 한국 미디어 소비, 친구 구성, 한국어 사용 현황 등을 통해 그들의 민족적 유대감은 어느 정도인지, 그리고 이러한 유대감 형성에 영향을 준 다양한 요소는 무엇인지 살펴보고자 합니다. 이번 발표에 사용된 데이터는 뉴욕 거주 179명의 한인 2세 고등학생들을 대상으로 약 5개월 간 (2008.11~2009.12) 전화, 인터넷, 개인 인터뷰 등을 통해 수집된 것입니다.
 
한인사회가 앞으로도 계속해서 발전하기 위해서는 한인 2세에 대한 한인사회의 관심과 연구가 반드시 필요합니다. 이번 세미나에서는 특별히 직접 데이터 수집에 참여한 한인 2세 Audrey Joo 학생의 생생한 경험도 들어볼 수 있는 자리가 될 예정이오니, 관심있는 분들의 많은 참석을 부탁드립니다.
