Roots and Reflections

South Asians in the Pacific Northwest

University of Washington Press
Roots and Reflections uses oral history to show how South Asian immigrant experiences in Washington and Oregon were shaped by the region and how they differed over time and across generations. It includes the stories of immigrants from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka who arrived from the end of World War II through the 1980s. Personal stories combine with historical, media, and popular culture accounts to illuminate the themes of departure and arrival, gender relations, education, work, marriage, parenting, ties with the home country, and community building.
Amy Bhatt is assistant professor of gender and women's studies at the University of Maryland-Baltimore County. Nalini Iyer is professor of English at Seattle University.
