Biography

After receiving his doctorate in anthropology in 1997 from the University of California at Berkeley, Takeyuki (Gaku) Tsuda was a collegiate assistant professor at the University of Chicago for three years. He then moved to the University of California at San Diego to become associate director of the Center for Comparative Immigration Studies, where he helped establish and develop the center into a leading interdisciplinary, multinational research and training institute. Tsuda was hired by the School of Human Evolution and Social Change in 2006 and promoted to professor in 2013.  He has been the approach head of sociocultural anthropology for over eight years.

Tsuda's most recent research examines the ethnic minority status of Japanese Americans across the generations and the extent to which they remain connected to their ethnic heritage.  He is currently conducting research about mixed-race Asians (people whose ethnic heritage is a mixture of Asian and non-Asian ancestries) in the United States.

Education

  • Ph.D. Anthropology, University of California, Berkeley 1997
  • M.A. Anthropology, University of California, Berkeley 1991
  • B.A. Anthropology, University of Chicago 1990

Research Interests

Tsuda's research interests include International migration, diasporas, ethnic minorities, ethnic and national identity, transnationalism and globalization, and ethnic return migrants. 

He has conducted comparative, multi-site field research on ethnic and immigrant minorities in various urban areas from a transnational, diasporic perspective with an emphasis on their socioeconomic marginalization, ethnonational identities, ethnic heritage, cultural practices, and notions of home and homeland. He is particularly interested in examining how the experiences of ethnic minorities vary as they migrate across national borders and are situated in various local ethnoracial, political and social class contexts even as they increasingly become members of transnational and diasporic communities in a globalized world. Tsuda's past research focused on the ethnic return migration of Japanese Brazilians from Brazil to Japan as unskilled foreign workers. He has also written on comparative immigration policy, local citizenship among immigrants, and the comparative experiences of ethnic return migrants in their ancestral homelands in various European and East Asian countries.

Tsuda's most recent research examines the ethnic minority status of Japanese Americans across the generations and the extent to which they remain connected to their ethnic heritage. This is part of a larger project on the Japanese "diaspora" in the Americas, which will eventually compare Japanese Americans and Japanese Brazilians in the varying ethnoracial and historical contexts of the United States and Brazil.  He is also currently conducting research about mixed-race Asians (people whose ethnic heritage is a mixture of Asian and non-Asian ancestries) in the United States.  In addition to his ethnographic research, Tsuda has published theoretical work related to migration, immigration policy, diasporas, globalization, transnationalism, citizenship, and ethnic return migration, among other topics.
