    What are the nuances of “Chinese American”, “Chinese-American”, and “Chinese/American”? Does exploring these questions alter our notions of just what an American is and will be? Through the lens of an American-born son raised by immigrant parents and a father raising a Chinese American daughter, Eric Liu, author of A Chinaman’s Chance: One Family’s Journey and the Chinese American Dream, examines how we compose an American identity and what it means to be a citizen in America.

She will read excerpts from her memoir, Beijing Bastard, and share film excerpts from the Sixth Generation directors. Raised in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., Val moved to Beijing in 1998, expecting to find freedom but instead lived with relatives who monitored her every move in the ancient capital.
