The Conference

Among scholars of China and Chinese in the Americas, the heterogeneity of Chinese subjectivities and global diasporas is uncontested, but homogeneous classification and representation, specifically in reference to the “Chinese” obfuscates their embedded diversity.

This includes the histories, movements, dialects, foodways, religious beliefs and practices, ethnic communities, political ideologies, transpacific and transnational linkages, and networks.

“This Land Is Our Land”: Chinese Pluralities Through the Americas seeks to unpack, (re)examine, re(focus), (re)calibrate, and (re)imagine the pluralities of “Chinese” experiences within, among, and through the Americas—historically and presently. We enjoin participants to take a global view of the Chinese experience in the Americas. The primary focus of this Conference is research on any and all aspects of Chinese American history, Chinese American studies, and Chinese in Americas.

See our conference page at chsa.org/conference2017 for more details about the conference and call for papers.

The Conference is hosted by the Chinese Historical Society of America.

Principal organizer: Jonathan H. X. Lee, Asian American Studies, San Francisco State University
