ASAM Fellows Colloquium in conversation with ASAM fellow Lily Suh.

Title: The Unraveling of the American Dream across Korean American Migration Narratives

Abstract: Lily is researching migration narratives from Korea to the United States and tracing the portrayal of the American Dream in literature in order to demonstrate how white society projects the American Dream in order to lure immigrants into America with the hope of upward mobility. However, this project reveals how the American Dream unravels throughout generations of immigrants who are unable to achieve this dream in reality.
