This chapter discusses the relationship between South Asian immigration and labor in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. It analyzes experiences of two Indian Americans in Muncie, Indiana, one of whom is a doctor and other of whom is the spouse of a doctor. It situates their stories within the larger context of the deindustrialization of Muncie and the rise of a post-industrial society. It uses discourse analysis to describe how racial prejudice, social marginalization, and religious difference have affected the lives of immigrant working professionals and are embedded in the stories of daily life that the individuals share.

Keywords:   Muncie, Indiana, South Asian Americans, Indian Americans, post-industrialism, immigrant doctors, deindustrialization, discourse analysis
