In Search of Theoretical Framework: A Case Study of Chinese Mothers' Experiences in Immigration and Education
Chen, Shujun
Journal of Ethnographic & Qualitative Research, v4 n2 p75-87 2010
This paper seeks to develop a theoretical framework that is applicable to research on recent immigrant Chinese mothers in the United States. Although Black, Chicana, and transnational feminist epistemologies exist in previous scholarship, there is no comparable discourse in the study of Chinese mothers' experiences in the United States. In this qualitative case study, I examine 3 Chinese mothers' stories to explore their unique perspectives about historical and cultural roots, immigration, and children's education. My intent is to gain deeper insight into the formation of these views. I argue for the need to consider a Chinese feminist lens in order to more comprehensively understand the experience of Chinese mothers in the United States.
