Culture Shock – Chinese Americans in China

Young Chinese-Americans are coming to China in increasing numbers, some 30 years after their parents made the reverse journey to America. Why is that? Is it a pragmatic response to the recent economic downturn? Is it a wistful search for identity? Or is it something more?

Stephy Chung sits down with fellow expatriate Chinese-Americans including writer, musician and Director of International Communications for Baidu, Kaiser Kuo, to get their stories on why they’ve chosen to live and work in China. She also speaks with Professor Jinzhao Li of Beijing Foreign Studies University about her recent study on the identity transformation of Chinese-Americans in China.
