British Chinese Women: An Interdisciplinary Workshop

8th May 2019 @ 9:30 am – 1:30 pm
Kings College London
London WC2R 2LS
British Chinese Women: An Interdisciplinary Workshop @ Kings College London | England | United Kingdom

This half-day workshop is centred on the subjectivities, experiences and representations of British Chinese women. In 1988, an inaugural conference of the National Federation of Chinese women was held in Birmingham and 40 years later, the topic of British Chinese women is seldom a part of public and academic discourse.

This event seeks to continue and extend those dialogues by showcasing current research on the British Chinese in relation to gender. To present a contemporary and evolving portrait of British Chinese women, papers will be drawn from interdisciplinary perspectives ranging from social history, motherhood, online identity and technology, domestic violence, material culture and participatory art methods.

This workshop welcomes those who are interested in the subject of British Chinese women, academics and cultural and arts practitioners alike, all welcome.
