AOPSSS #45 “Understanding Perceptions of Asian-ness and Group Membership among Asian Americans”

In the forty-fifth AOPSSS session, Jennifer Wu (Yale) presented her paper on how perceptions of Asian-ness – specifically, whether some national origin groups are perceived as being “more” or “less” Asian – influences subsequent perceptions and preferences around the descriptive representativeness of Asian politicians. Nathan K. Chan (UC, Irvine), Edward T. Chang (UC, Riverside), Natalie Masuoka (UCLA), and Sara Sadhwani (Pomona College) provided fantastic conceptual, empirical, and theoretical comments.
