Forever foreign? Exploring national identity denial in perceptions of Asian people
Racial minorities in Western nations (particularly those of Asian descent) are stereotyped to be “perpetual foreigners” – they are chronically perceived and treated as though they are outsiders in their own land. In this talk, I will present research examining how Asian Australians and Asian Americans negotiate this denial of national identity. I will also discuss my line of work investigating the factors that can bolster the perceived national identity of Asian people, and diminish the discrepancy in perceived national identity between Asian and White people.
