Review of Education, Pedagogy, and Cultural Studies
This paper describes findings from interviews with five second generation Southeast Asian Americans (SEAAs) from Central Iowa. While Iowa is commonly associated with white farmers and endless cornfields, Southeast Asian refugees have a remarkable history in this region that is largely unknown and unrecognized. The five individuals interviewed describe their educational experiences on the margins, and their stories offer educators points of departure to better recognize the cultural and linguistic assets that refugee students possess.
