Join BKA for a discussion on "Transnational Adoption and National Identity". It will be held on Wednesday, May 23, 2018 at ImpactHub in the Windrose Conference Room on the 5th Floor, starting at 7pm.
Description of Topic:
As transnational adoptees, we often experience conflict between how we identify with our country of origin and our country of residence. This conflict may sway one way or another over the course of our lives, based on our experiences and interactions with other members of both societies. Furthermore, while citizenship legally binds us to one society or another, legal loopholes continue to plague some transnational adoptees in not only finding their identity, but also in avoiding being forced to move somewhere that was never really home.
The BKA Discussion Group is made possible by a grant from the Korean Ministry of Health and Wellness. Previously, the discussion group has hosted events on various film screenings and discussions on KAD conferences, anxiety, stereotypes, relationships, and families among adoptees.
