Elusive Belonging

Chapter 6 examines Filipinas marriage immigrants’ diverse paths of incorporation to the Korean rural community. The chapter aims to shift our attention from Filipinas’ struggles to adapt as newcomers to the dynamic process through which marriage immigrants are incorporated into the society over time. In the first part, two Filipinas’ stories show how model marriage immigrants have been incorporated into their marital families and communities, and in turn, how they have transformed these communities. The second part focuses on class-based and racial mistreatments that Filipinas experience and delves into a key issue that has yet to be fully discussed: namely the racialization of Southeast Asians.
