Chineseness across Borders

The Los Angeles Times has an interesting article on why Asian Americans are having trouble getting jobs teaching English in China. Apparently most schools prefer to have white teachers. A few years ago Andrea Louie, Associate Professor of Anthropology at Michigan State University, wrote Chineseness across Borders, in which she examined  programs designed to facilitate interactions between overseas Chinese and their ancestral homelands. She found that when Chinese American youths travel to mainland China in search of
their ancestral roots, many realize that in many ways they still
feel out of place.
