Helene Lee

Professor Lee

Assistant Professor of

Sociology (2008)

Professor Lee’s new book, Between Foreign and Family, explores impacts of ethnic inclusion and exclusion among Korean Americans and Korean Chinese, who are part of a growing wave of Korean descendants now migrating back to their ancestral homeland. Using both ethnographic and interview data, she discusses how return migration demonstrates the misunderstood concept of ethnic identity construction, which is not defined by blood and ancestry, but instead a turbulent combination of ethnicity, nationality, citizenship, gender and history. With her book, Prof. Lee has made a “distinct contribution to the field of transnational studies”.
