International Conference for the Study of Chinese Immigration to Brazil: Local Contexts and Global Perspectives
August 22-23, 2018, São Paulo, Brazil
Ever since Chinese immigration to Brazil began to emerge as a field of study in 1970, it has attracted the interest of Chinese, Brazilian, and American scholars from various disciplines, as well as students, journalists, diplomats, and independent writers. These scholars and authors have contributed to the field with books, research papers, reports, and memoirs. Most of these works, however, were isolated efforts with few or no exchanges among those who dedicated themselves to the study of Chinese immigration to Brazil.
This first International Conference for the Study of Chinese Immigration to Brazil, to be held at the University of São Paulo on August 22-23, 2018, intends to promote and advance the study of Chinese immigration in a global perspective while aiming at constructing a platform to promote international exchanges in this promising interdisciplinary field of studies. We welcome panel proposals and individual papers from scholars, journalists, undergraduate and graduate students, independent writers, etc. The conference language will be ENGLISH, but Chinese, Spanish, and Portuguese language proposals will also be accepted. Possible themes include, but are not limited to the following:
1. Chinese migration in a global perspective.
2. Chinese immigration to Brazil: history and beyond.
3. Diasporic Associations, Transnational Business Networks and Cultural Identity.
4. Chinese Language Teaching, Chinese media in Brazil.
5. Local integration, social mobility and political visibility.
