Diaspora and Identity in Asia-Africa Relations: A Conversation with Authors
The discussion featuring two authors, Ufrieda Ho, and Gayatri Sethi, will be moderated by Duncan Yoon from New York University. The conversation will delve into the themes explored in their respective books: Paper Sons and Daughters: Growing up Chinese in South Africa (Ohio University Press, 2012) by Ufrieda Ho and Unbelonging (Mango & Marigold Press, 2021) by Gayatri Sethi.
The conversation hopes to explore the diaspora experiences and identity formation as seen through the lens of these two authors and their works. It provides an opportunity to engage with the rich tapestry of narratives that shape the relationships between Asia and Africa while exploring the personal stories that breathe life into these broader themes.
