Intimacy, Desire, and the Construction of Self in Relationships between Asian American Women and White American Men. This study examines interracial rrelationships between Asian Ameri-cans and white Americans.
The goal is to understand how the social construction of sexual desire is shaped by race and gender. This study begins with the argument that racialized images and discourses on "Asian women" and "White men" have been produced within the hierarchies of local and global structures of race, gender, and nation. Through an examination of life-history interviews, this study addresses how Asian American women married to or partnered with white men have strategically participated in the re-generation of these discourses. My goal is to understand how and why Asian American women submit to, resist, and identify with hegemonic white masculinity.
Scholars have discussed racial stereotypes as significant components of racialized desires. I conducted interviews in Austin, Texas in 2000 and 2001, with fifteen racially mixed couples and twelve singles who had previously dated interracially.

The Paradox of Assimilation: Children of Filipino Immigrants in San Diego. Yen Le Espiritu and Diane L.
Wolf For: Ruben Rumbaut and Alejandro Portes eds., Ethnicities. Berkeley: UC Press. 1999 Filipinos constitute the largest Asian-origin immigrant group in California and in the United States; their post-1965 migration to the United States is the second largest only after the Mexicans. Despite these numbers, Filipino Americans remain a remarkably understudied and overlooked group both in US culture and in academic research.
Drawing on quantitative data from the longitudinal CILS study and qualitative data we have collected in our own research, this paper examines the adaptive trajectories of the children of Filipino immigrants in San Diego, California by focusing on their patterns of academic achievement and ambition, ethnic identify shifts, and psychological well-being. Unlike European or other Asian groups, Filipinos come from a homeland that was once a U.S. colony. Not all of the contemporary immigrants from the Philippines are professionals, however.
