Bio: Byung Soo Lee is a PhD student in the Department of Sociology at the University at Buffalo. His research program focuses on how Asian immigrant families in the United States experience the changes of family relations, and the narratives of the families which reveal the gap between the subjective perception of family relations and the structural changes in a given society. His current research examines how Asian immigrant family members interpret the meaning of parenthood, and why there is a discrepancy across generations and between gender within families, in relation to social changes.
