Jennifer Lee

University of California Irvine

Research Initiative:

Lee will write a book comparing the different mobility pathways of the adult children of Mexican, Chinese, and Vietnamese immigrants in Los Angeles. Departing from earlier studies, she will rely on the subjects’ assessments of success rather than normative definitions. Lee will bridge the immigration and culture literatures to illustrate how ethnicity can operate as a resource for the children of immigrants, particularly for those whose parents arrive with few skills and little education. Lee will also work on a project examining how diversity in peer networks influences academic performance.
