The Organising Committee of the 6th Chinese in Africa / Africans in China Research Network Conference invites you to join our 6th online mini-symposium titled ‘Ethnographies of Mobility: Circular Migration and Uneven Geographies’ this July 2, 2021 (Friday).

Join Vivian Chenxue Lu, from Fordham University; Derek Sheridan, from Academia Sinica; and Mingwei Huang, from Dartmouth College, for an insightful conversation about circular migrations of Chinese and Africans between China and Africa. The speakers will delve into how shifting uneven geographies shape migrant motivations, destinations, and experiences as racialized, national, ethnic, and gendered subjects. The mini-symposium is moderated by Cheryl Schmitz, Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, Berlin.

This event is hosted by the Chinese in Africa / Africans in China Research Network Conference Organising Committee in collaboration with the Centre for Cultural Research and Development at the Department of Cultural Studies, Lingnan University, Hong Kong; and the Institute for Emerging Markets Studies at HKUST
