Vue Publishes Book
Dr. Pao Vue, Assistant Professor of Sociology, has recently published a book entitled, Assimilation and the Gendered Color Line: Hmong Case Studies of Hip-Hop and Import Racing.
In the book, Vue explores and analyzes segmented assimilation using case studies from the Hmong population, an ethnic group originally from China, Laos, Thailand, and Southeast Asia. His work sheds light on how second generation children are positioning themselves within the U.S. racial order. His findings indicate that the color line, while blurred, is still very strong in the U.S. and structures how children of immigrants adjust to American life. Through their encounters with exclusion, racism, and even agents of social control, Hmong male participants engage in resistance and create identity by using their cultural “tool kits,” including the popular practices of hip-hop and import racing.
