Brief description of your activity focus
I explore the relationship between diaspora communitity and its material culture in London and contemporary Taiwan
Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
My research focuses on how the Chinese diaspora and their family in Taiwan construct identity through material culture.
This research is delving into the everyday practices of now-elderly Chinese diaspora and their well-established family in Taiwan. I will compare and contrast how these people think about themselves, and more importantly, their subtle relationship with other Taiwanese ethnic groups, amongst whom many are their neighbors, colleagues, and relatives by affinity.
