Retrospect and Prospect: International Symposium on Chinese Canadian Literature and Media

Jul 20, 2017, 8:30AM-6PM

The symposium (scclm) aims to explore literary and media representations of the Chinese diaspora in Canada over the 150 years of Canada’s nationhood. The symposium will study literary works authored by Chinese Canadian writers who write in English and Chinese, and Chinese language newspapers. The symposium will feature 14 academic panels and a keynote speech that will be open to both the York community and the larger GTA academic community.

Organizers welcome the general public to York on Day 2 of the symposium, which will feature roundtables on fiction by the newly arrived Chinese immigrants during the past 30 years, and a chance to hear about the work and experiences of two nationally recognized Chinese Canadian authors in a special afternoon session.

The symposium is one of the Canada 150 @ York projects, and is in cooperation with Wenzhou University and Jinan University.
