Cultural Translation and Chinese-Canadian Studies Workshop
Mar 13, 2014 to Mar 14, 2014
Contextualized within larger debates about multicultural Canadian society and the specific Chinese-Canadian cultural experience, this workshop will offer an in-depth analysis of Chinese-Canadian communities from the late 18th century to the present. Presenters will investigate cultural interactions across various axes of difference, such as gender, race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, philosophy, history, literature, migration, marketplace and diasporas – each taken as unstable categories of cultural production in the Chinese-Canadian experience.
Vivienne Poy will give the keynote address, "Perspectives: Canadian Society and Chinese Immigration", at 9:15am on Thursday, March 13, in 109 Atkinson Building.
All are welcome to attend. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The workshop programme is available on the website.
The workshop will take place in 109 Atkinson Building on March 13 and in 519 Kaneff Tower on March 14.
