A conversation with Takeyuki Tsuda.

Takeyuki Tsuda (Gaku) has been researching the ethnic minority status of Japanese Americans across generations, and the extent to which they remain connected to their ethnic heritage. How do Japanese-Americans’ differ across countries, let alone generations? Having been in America as long as (if not longer than) other immigrants, why are Asian-Americans still constantly defending their ‘Americanness’? We discuss the ways in which generations of Japanese-Americans respond to these pressures.
