Abstract: Attempts to identify & explain changes in family ethos & practices among ethnic Vietnamese in Quebec, using 1997 in-depth interview data from 21 Vietnamese. The analysis focuses on an emerging diasporic space linking family, host society, & Vietnam. While exploring the family-identity link, the analytical gaze is on the age & gender politics of the family. Offered in conclusion is a note on the gradual nuclearization & democratization of the Vietnamese family overseas, although these processes are not without attendant attempts on the part of members of the diaspora to hold on to certain aspects of the old family form, creating a certain ambivalence.
