Meeting of the Minds

About Us

Welcome to PARIC! We are a non-profit organization committed to exploring the relationship between Pakistan and America. We are most interested in the generational gap that occurs when people from other countries move to America and have children who grow up as Americans. How is identity created through a hyphen, such as Pakistani-American or Cuban-American? We ask questions like, how do these two generations view the world? How do they relate to one another? How is cultural identity created? What parts of one’s culture are lost? What do we want to hold on to?
