Following on from the success of the Dragon Tails conferences at Ballarat in 2009 and the Chinese Museum in Melbourne in 2011, we will be holding the third Dragon Tails, an Australasian conference on overseas Chinese history and heritage, at the University of Wollongong in New South Wales. Dragon Tails 2013 is timed to coincide with the Australian Historical Association conference also being held at Wollongong, from 8 to 12 July 2013.
Dragon Tails 2013 will explore the twin forces of tradition and modernity, examining the histories of cultural maintenance and evolution amongst overseas Chinese. Diverse aspects of tradition and modernity could be considered through papers on religion, family values, community organisation, business and trade activities, gender roles, labour relations, political action, the arts and architecture etc. We encourage papers which take an Australian or local focus, as well as papers on the global Chinese diaspora. We welcome the attendance and participation of family historians.
Professor Henry Yu from University of British Columbia, Canada, will be the keynote speaker.
