Meet the Author: Dr. Madeline Hsu, “The Good Immigrants”

September 12, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

“The Good Immigrants” considers immigration from the perspective of Chinese elites—intellectuals, businessmen, and students—who gained entrance because of immigration exemptions. Exploring a century of Chinese migrations, Madeline Hsu looks at how the model minority characteristics of many Asian Americans resulted from US policies that screened for those with the highest credentials in the most employable fields, enhancing American economic competitiveness. Come meet the author for a special event and discussion.
