Return Migration and Identity: Nan Sussman

Check out APS Member Nan Sussman of the College of Staten Island, The City University of New York in this WNYC segment: The Leonard Lopate Show: Return Migrations and Identity from March 16, 2011.

In Return Migrations and Identity, psychology professor Nan Sussman chronicles this global trend and explains why there is a unique relevance for Hong Kong. She’s joined by Byron Shen, a Chinese immigrant who came to the United States for his Ph.D. at the University of California and then worked for a biotech company before returning to Shanghai in 2007.
