Stanford University Libraries contain many titles on the historical and contemporary experience of Asian Americans, making it an excellent place for students conducting research in this area. Because of the interdisciplinary nature of Asian American, relevant titles are often dispersed throughout the general collection depending upon subject matter. Use Socrates , Stanford's online catalog to to locate books and other materials. Use the library's print or electronic indexes to locate journal and newspaper articles and published papers. Socrates can tell you what library materials Stanford owns and where they are located, allowing you to search by author, title, call number, organization, or subject.

Introduction Rationale for Multiethnic Literature in the Classroom Characteristics of Good Multiethnic Literature History of Asian American Literature ... Movies
Asian American literature is a growing new field. It is considered one of the subdivisions of multicultural literature. The literature today like the Joy Luck Club are best sellers in the book market and there is a growing demand for more.
The Asian population of the United States today continues to rapidly increase and they constitute about 2.9% of the total American population. According the 1990 census, the largest Asian minority in the United States are the Chinese Asian population. Of that percentage, Chinese is the largest with a largest percentage being foreign born. The second largest group is the Filipino which constitute 19%. Japanese make up 12% with most of them being native born. Indian and Korean each are at 11% and Vietnamese make up 8% of the population. Another subgroup of Asians includes the Hmong (mung) which are a culture group that immigrated 5,000 years ago from China to the mountainous region of Laos, but many were forced out of their territory during the Vietnam War because they helped the United States during the conflict.

(Updated Monday, Mar 24, 2003, 07:44:44 AM) ooner of later every minority person faces the identity question. It comes in a variety of flavors but at its core is the assimilation vs acculturation dilemma.
What's the difference?
As used by social scientists, assimilation is allowing one's original culture to be overidden by the dominant culture. Acculturation is acquiring the capability to function within the dominant culture while retaining one's original culture. The distinction seems subtle but is fraught with not-so-subtle social and psychological implications.
Assimilate or acculturate?
Collectively, the Asian American population shows statistical evidence of both assimilation and acculturation.
The 2000 Census counted 11.9 million identifying themselves as Asian Americans. That total was comprised of 10.2 million (85.7%) claiming purely Asian heritage and 1.7 million (14.3%) claiming mixed heritage. Of the mixed-heritage Asian Americans, 868,395 (52.4%) claimed part white ancestry, 138,802 (8.38%) claimed part Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander ancestry, 106,782 (6.45%) claimed part black ancestry, and 249,108 (17.7%) claimed another unspecified race. These mixed-race Asian Americans evidence a notable degree of assimilation, especially in light of the fact that in most parts of the U.S. anti-miscegenation laws weren't outlawed until the late 1960s.

Asian-influenced trends and Asian-American trendsetters
by Ricco Villanueva Siasoco
Eastern Standard Time is a veritable encyclopedia of Asian-influenced culture. In February 2000, a Newsweek headline proclaimed, " Why Asian Guys are on a Roll ," and was accompanied by a photo of a young Asian man with rollerblades and sunglasses, his WASP-ish girlfriend wrapped around him. The crux of the article was the change in American perceptions of Asian men.
Asian Americans have become hip. From well-known personalities like Jet Li, Tiger Woods , and Jackie Chan to widespread trends like and Tibetan Buddhism , a distinctly Asian sensibility has permeated American popular culture. Instead of stereotypical Asian images of bespectacled brainiacs (think Mickey Rooney in Breakfast at Tiffany's ), exotic temptresses (remember Suzie Wong?), or ancient wisemen from the East like Charlie Chan, media and advertising images often attach an Asian face to a wholesome American lifestyle.
The Asian-influenced trend has been brewing for several years. In 1997 the editors of A. Magazine

Asian-American Identity Problems for Dr. Ryang
Asian Civilization I

Introduction/Overview While Asian-Americans have a very rich culture, often they suffer from problems of identity crises, as do many in this country. Should one maintain a sense of family history? Or is it better to try to blend in and assimilate with the rest of America? This is a problems many minorities, in general, face, but Asian-Americans seem to have a particular presence in this problem. There are countless reasons as to why this could be. This paper will explore specific problems among Asian-Americans trying to find an identity as well as possible reasons and solutions for this problem. The information from this paper comes from books containing oral histories, statistical books, and personal interviews, as well as a smattering of hypothesizing and author's contemplation on the subject.
History of Asian Dissension From the very point in the mid-19th century that Chinese people began to come to the United States, there was a general distaste for these foreigners. Stereotypes surrounded them and while having their supporters, many people made it publically known their views on Chinese immigrants. An 1873 editorial in the magazine The Elevator shows the ignorant hostility being vented: This disturbing train of thought suffers from what many racist rationalizations do: poorly thought out arguments. The most notable one in this particular editorial is the reference to Chinese as "pagans in religion." This is ironic because while many Chinese of the time did not subscribe to Christianity, their primary religion was Buddhism, a clearly monotheistic religion. A pagan, as defined by the Miriam-Webster dictionary, is a "follower of a polytheistic religion."

An Experience of Joy and Pain

Iantha Gantt-Wright
National Parks and Conservation Association Click an image to read its caption. America's national parks are storehouses of knowledge that provide us with the tools we need to educate our youth about our rich history and, along with that history, about the broad and unique cultural diversity of our nation's citizenry. From the beauty of Yosemite National Park to the powerful message presented by Manzanar National Historic Site, our National Park System can take us to places and re-create events that bring us both joy and pain and with those experiences comes a better understanding of who we are. Who we are is a complicated puzzle. We are both a nation that allowed human beings to be sold like chattel and a nation that fostered the great African-American orator, Frederick Douglass. We are both the nation that has for decades welcomed immigrants as the "tired and poor" as represented by the Statue of Liberty National Memorial in New York Harbor and the nation that spurred 120,000 Japanese Americans because they were different and resembled an enemy that had dropped bombs on U.S. soil As the National Park System begins to reflect the many faces of America, we are challenged with the job of coming to terms with not just our nation's most shining achievements, as represented by the Edison National Historic Site, New Jersey, which is the home and laboratory of the great inventor, but shameful events as well. As educators it is up to us to bring all aspects of our history to the youth of America. Without the whole truth, we create for them an unreal world, which in turn can cause cynicism and misunderstanding. In the end, that misunderstanding can even turn to hate.

Doug Clarke, Yves Yacinthe and Salvatore Genovese were once again recognized as the best interlibrary loan department in New England.
t's the type of job that is largely unknown to the general university community. But Northeastern's interlibrary loan department is making a name for itself nevertheless. The three-man office this summer was honored for the second time in three years as the InterLibrary Loan Department of Year by the New England Library Network, or Nelinet. "This is indicative of the dedication and team effort that this group puts forward," said library dean Alan Benenfeld. The staff - Salvatore Genovese, Yves Yacinthe and Douglas Clarke - was chosen for the honor by its peers from about 500 libraries that use Nelinet. "It's very gratifying, because this is one of the few pieces of feedback we have with the libraries we work with," Genovese said. The department, which exchanges books, articles and various documents with other libraries, fields most of its requests through an on-line service. "That makes it tough to gauge how people feel about our service," Genovese said. "This shows that they do appreciate our work." The interlibrary loan staff won the same honor in 1993-94. Paul Champion , chair of physics, delivered a lecture, "Real Time Observation of Heme Protein Vibrations Using Femtosecond Coherence Spectroscopy," at the Gordon Conference on Vibrational Spectroscopy in Henniker, N.H.
