演題:“Race, Religion, and Citizenship: Indian American Political Advocacy”

 

要旨:What are the factors that trigger the political mobilization of new immigrant and ethnic groups in Western societies? What factors shape the strategies and patterns of mobilization of new ethnic groups? This presentation draws on a book in progress on Indian American political activism to examine these questions. Indian Americans have been described as a “rising political powerhouse” in the United States. What is particularly striking about this group is that they have mobilized around a variety of identities to influence U.S. policy. Some identify as Indian Americans, others as South Asians, and yet others on the basis of religious identity as Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, and Christians. A growing group identifies in terms of their party affiliation as Democrats and Republicans. There is also an adult, second-generation population that is getting involved in civic and political activism in very different ways than from their parents’ generation. My research focused on a variety of Indian American advocacy organizations and found that differing understandings of race, as well as majority/minority status in India and in the United States produced much of the variation in the patterns of civic and political activism of the various groups. I demonstrate that these activism patterns can be explained by the ways in which race and religion intertwine with the characteristics of groups and political opportunity structures in the United States.
