The Extraordinary Religiosity of Second-Generation Asian American Muslims and Evangelical Christians
Carolyn Chen studies religion, race and ethnicity, and immigration. Her book, Getting Saved in America: Taiwanese Immigration and Religious Experience (Princeton University Press, 2008) examines how religious conversion to evangelical Christianity and Buddhism restructures self and community among Taiwanese immigrants. She has edited a volume written with Russell Jeung, Sustaining Faith Traditions: Race, Ethnicity, and Religion among the Latino and Asian American Second Generation (New York University Press, 2012). She is currently working on a project that examines spirituality and alternative health in the United States.
