Description

Finding and Making Home: Poems and Reflections of Undergraduate Children of Immigrants, Is A Well-Researched Topic, It Is To Be Used As A Guide Or Framework For Your Research.

ABSTRACT

The number of children of immigrants within the United States has grown over the past few decades and more so we are seeing a greater number of these children pursuing a higher education. With a growing number of undergraduate children of immigrants growing, there is a
need to understand how they see themselves as a part of the United States. Previous studies take into consideration how these students navigate higher education, however, there is a lack of research on these students’ larger understanding of belonging within the overall nation. Poetry as data and a process was the grounding methodology that led this study to collect participant poems and interviews that accompanied the researcher’s autoethnographical poem and reflection.

With counter storytelling as the conceptual framework, collected data were examined to provide insight as to why undergraduate children of immigrants have found themselves bringing their parents’ cultural traditions to them and making them their own in the United States.
