This summer, my research will explore the development of ethnic enclaves in Seattle's Chinatown-International District. Growing up in Vietnam, with Filipino parents, and experiencing profound homesickness when I moved to Canada for my studies, I found solace in Toronto's ethnic enclaves, such as Little Manila and the Vietnamese establishments near the university's campus. This inspired me to examine the development of ethnic enclaves generally, and I found a particularly compelling example in Seattle's Chinatown-International District. There, I will conduct a comparative investigation of four enclaves in the neighborhood. Though I am incredibly nervous, I'm equally excited to embark on this meaningful study!
