Book Launch: The Transcultural Streams of Chinese Canadian Identities

Book: The Transcultural Streams of Chinese Canadian Identities

Focusing on the geopolitical and economic circumstances that have prompted migration from Hong Kong and mainland China to Canada, The Transcultural Streams of Chinese Canadian Identities examines the Chinese Canadian community as a simultaneously transcultural, transnational, and domestic social and cultural formation. Taking an innovative interdisciplinary approach to the ways in which Chinese Canadian adapt to and co-construct the Canadian cultural mosaic, the book explores various patterns of Chinese cultural exchanges in Canada and how they intertwine with the community’s sense of belonging and disengagement.
