A post-conference workshop in China sponsored by the Institute of Overseas Chinese Studies at Jinan University in Guangzhou and the Guangdong Qiaoxiang Culture Research Center at Wuyi University in Jiangmen will follow from June 11 to 13.

The Conference brings together scholars from the United States, Canada, mainland China, and Hong Kong who specialize in the fields of Chinese American and diaspora studies.
