Reassessing Chinese Diaspora from the South: History, Culture and Narrative (Online conference)
Three-day online conference on "Reassessing Chinese Diaspora from the South: History, Culture and Narrative", organised by ANU Centre for the Study of the Chinese Southern Diaspora (CSCSD), Australian Centre on China in the World (CIW), School of Culture, History and Language (CHL) and Malaysia Institute.

This symposium aims to offer a platform for a critical assessment of the study of diasporic Chineseness since the end of the war, especially in light of the unsettling developments we are currently witnessing. Zooming out from the ethno-nationalistic focus of the study of Chinese diaspora, this symposium seeks to explore the concrete intellectual and cultural networks, institutions and productions of the Chinese diaspora in the South in historical and contemporary times. It explores new angles of intersectionality in the field, problematizes the concept of Chinese diaspora and seeks new theoretical intervention into the study of Chinese and Chineseness in/from the South.

The conference will be held online with the exception of the Keynote Address on 15 April, which will be a face-to-face event with an online option. Please register separately for the keynote if you wish to attend in-person here:
