Book Information

   

Title: Language, Identity, and Stereotype Among Southeast Asian American Youth
Subtitle: The Other Asian
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.
