Auckland Libraries: Contemporary scene

Contemporary scene with Manying Ip

Wednesday 14 October 2pm to 3pm Free

Manying Ip, author and professor of Asian studies at the University of Auckland sheds light on the Chinese people in New Zealand.

This talk will outline the latest demographic data gathered in the recent 2018 census. More importantly, the speaker will outline her in-depth understanding of the New Zealand Chinese based on her decades of research. She will share with the audience issues like why the Chinese are so diverse (and not one uniform community), where they reside, their ties to the homeland and their sense of allegiance to New Zealand. To them, where is home? The speaker will also explore their relationship with New Zealand’s Tangata Whenua.

Please call 09 377 0209 for more information and to RSVP.
