Questions: 1. Ask the informant to provide general information about his or her life, which can be included in the introduction. This should include age, gender, description of family, location of household, education/major, and work. - Eunice Mak - Age: 26 September 9, 1990 - Gender: F - Description: lives with parents, brother, and grandfather - Location: SF - Education: SFSU, BS in Human Development - Work: Pharmacy Technician at Kaiser 2. Ask the informant to tell you where he or she was born (city/town and country) and how he or she or his or her family arrived in Northern California, including the route that was taken: - Born: HK - Route: immigrated with my parents and grandparents when I was 1-year-old by plane to Vancouver, BC and then to San Francisco by plane as well. 3. What nationalities were the informant' s ancestors? - Chinese (HK [dad and grandpa], Macanese [grandma, ½ mom]) 4. How and when did the informant's ancestors immigrate to the United States? Why? In 1991 we immigrated to Vancouver, BC, Canada first, because we knew people who lived there and said good things about it. housing was also cheaper back then. We then immigrated 4 years later (when I was 5) to SF because my parent's friends from HK and some other family members were there. 5. How and when did the informant and/or family come to Northern California? Why? In 1996 my family moved to San Francisco California because my parent’s friends from HK and some other family members were there. Another reason was because the economy was great back then and it was thriving. My dad got a job and a computer engineer for Apple too. 6. Are there any family stories about migration? If so, briefly describe. Assimilation – had to get used to a calmer lifestyle, had to learn how to drive, learn how to own a house, learn English.

1 Anthropology 115 Interviewer (required) Emerging Global Cultures Interviewee Dr. Jennifer Anderson (Only needed for practice interview) Global Flows Ethnographic Exercise This on-line exercise wil1 prepare you for a homework fieldwork assignment (an ethnographic interview) conducted with a family member or friend outlining the context of family arrival in the United States drawn from the Silicon Valley region. The exercise will integrate themes and ideas outlined in the course. The U.S. differs from many' countries in that the majority of those living within its borders have arrived relatively recently (in anthropological terms)—less than five generations ago. By some estimates, 60% of the local region is either foreign born, or is one generation removed from immigration. The movement of people from one part of the world to another is an important dimension of contemporary globalization. The following assignment is designed to help you think about where, how, and why immigration takes place, and what the consequences are for the person you are interviewing-- your informant. The assignment is made up of two parts: (1) an on-line training in which you will practice in teams of two-one person interviews using a series of open-ended questions; (2) a homework assignment in which you will ask an informant-a friend or family member (who will remain anonymous) to answer the same questions. Both interviews should be turned in to Canvas in essay format. The questions that follow are an outline for the interview, weave them into an ethnographic essay which tells the person’s story of immigration. Both worksheets will ask you to describe the informant, and outline how she or she (or his or her family) arrived in Northern California, and how he or she evaluates migration. These observations are based on the informant's point of view and information, not yours. You will bring in your analytical voice to suggest which global processes—such as the push and pull of economics, politics, former colonial connections, chain migration (one person sponsors another to come) or "brain circulation" (a person comes for education or a more sophisticated job) might have played out in his or her (family's) life. Interviews can proceed more smoothly if you follow a few basic principles: 1. Establish .rapport: Try to make the informant feel comfortable. Remember that rapport-a relationship of mutual trust-is essential for doing good anthropology. 2. Listen to the informant: Carefully pay attention to what the informant is saying. Remember that this is not just a conversation-the informant should speak more than you do, and you should refrain from expressing your opinions or influencing the informant's answer. 3. Clarify responses: When you are unsure about a response from the informant, take the time to restate the question (perhaps in a slightly different fashion) or offer a summary to the informant for verification. 4. Take good notes: Write detailed notes based on your interview. Do not rely on memory.
