Title: Language, Identity, and Sterotype Among Southeast Asian American Youth
Subtitle: The Other Asian
Written By: Angela Reyes
Description:

This book–an ethnographic and discourse analytic study of an after-school
video-making project for 1.5- and second-generation Southeast Asian
American teenagers–explores the relationships among stereotype, identity,
and ethnicity that emerge in this informal educational setting.

Working from a unique theoretical foundation that combines linguistic
anthropology, Asian American studies, and education, and using rigorous
linguistic anthropological tools to closely examine video- and audio-
recorded interactions gathered during the video-making project (in which
teen participants learned the skills for creating their own video and adult
staff learned to respect and value the local knowledge of youth), the
author builds a compelling link between micro-level uses of language and
macro-level discourses of identity, race, ethnicity, and culture. In this
study of the ways in which teens draw on and play with circulating
stereotypes of the self and the other, Reyes uniquely illustrates how
individuals can reappropriate stereotypes of their ethnic group as a
resource to position themselves and others in interactionally meaningful
ways, to accomplish new social actions, and to assign new meanings to
stereotypes.

This is an important book for academics and students in sociolinguistics,
linguistic anthropology, discourse analysis, and applied linguistics with
an interest in issues of youth, race, and ethnicity, and/or educational
settings, and will also be of interest to readers in the fields of
education, Asian American studies, social psychology, and sociology.
