Dear Korean American Data Bank subscribers,

Greetings from the Research Center for Korean Community (RCKC) at Queens College. 

WHAT: Talk by Professor Pyong Gap Min titled "The Advantages of Suburban Enclaves Over Urban Enclaves in Community Empowerment: A Comparison of Korean Enclaves in Queens Borough and Bergen County in the NY-NJ Area"

WHEN: Wednesday, April 19, 2017, 6:30 to 8:30 PM (Food and drink will be available at 6:30, and the talk will begin at 7:00)

WHERE: Global Leadership Foundation, 46-20 Parsons Blvd, Flushing, NY 11355

On Wednesday, April 19, 2017, as part of our ongoing seminar series, Professor Pyong Gap Min of RCKC and Queens College will give a talk titled "The Advantages of Suburban Enclaves Over Urban Enclaves in Community Empowerment: A Comparison of Korean Enclaves in Queens Borough and Bergen County in the NY-NJ Area." This event, which is our first seminar event of 2017, will take place at Global Leadership Foundation on Parsons Blvd in Flushing from 6:30 to 8:30 PM. Food and drink will be available beginning at 6:30, and the talk will begin at 7:00. Admission to this event is free. *Please note that this talk will NOT take place at KCS (Korean Community Services of Metropolitan New York), which is where our seminars are usually held.* In the past, our first seminar of the year was held in March. However, this year, since KCS is in the process of relocating, we had some trouble finding a venue, thus, our first seminar of the year is happening later than usual.    

Professor Min's talk will focus on the advantages of suburban enclaves over urban enclaves in community empowerment, using Korean immigrant communities in the NYC borough of Queens and New Jersey's Bergen County as case studies. Using census data, newspaper articles, and personal interviews with Korean politicians and community leaders, the talk will cover three components of community empowerment: (1) electoral politics, (2) the promotion of the Korean language to American public schools, and (3) erecting "comfort women" monuments. Professor Min will also discuss some of the advantageous benefits of other suburban Korean enclaves in the U.S.

We hope that you will be able to attend this interesting talk.
