Blessings and Curses of Assimilation

May 31, 2022 @ 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM UTC-5

A conversation with Dr. Franklin S. Odo, Dr. Gary P. Zola, Dr. Riv-Ellen Prell, & Ting-Yi Oei, moderated by Ted Gong.

In America, the assimilation process is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, most members of an American minority group aspire to find full acceptance within American society. On the other hand, many resist total assimilation by negotiating their own distinctive identity that is shaped by a minority culture. Or as one scholar recently observed, “Jewish [and Chinese] Americans struggle to determine which side of the hyphen they should embrace.”

To commemorate May as both Jewish American Heritage Month and Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, the American Jewish Archives and the 1882 Foundation are joining forces to sponsor a unique webinar conversation to explore the yin yang nature of assimilation in America.
