The Cultural Identity of the Younger Generation of Overseas Chinese in Kobe
- 南研院－已发表论文 
华侨华人二三代已成为神户华侨华人社会的主体。他们虽有归化的倾向 ,他们的文化认同虽呈多元化 ,但是 ,他们仍然有中国人意识 ,主要认同中华文化。而且 ,对于中华文化的认同感 ,年轻的并不比年长的明显减弱。认为华侨华人二三代已经认同所在国文化的说法应当仍有商榷的余地。神户华侨华人二三代认同中华文化的原因很多 ,其中的一个重要原因 ,是日本社会的歧视或不平等对待。该原因在短期内是很难消除的。The second and third generations of overseas Chinese have become the majority of the Chinese community in Kobe. Although they have the tendency of becoming Japanese and their cultural identity has become multi-faceted, they nevertheless accept Chinese culture willingly. Moreover, the younger generation's sense of Chinese cultural identity is no less than the old generation. The viewpoint is arguable that the second and third generations have totally accepted Japanese culture. There are many reasons for the younger generations to accept Chinese culture, and one important reason is the social discrimination and unequal treatment in Japan that will not be eliminated in near future.
