[Upcoming Seminar] Heigui: Prejudice Towards Africans and Its Implication for a Changing China


Heigui: Prejudice Towards Africans and Its Implication for a Changing China

Speaker: LIN Dan, Linessa (PhD Candidate, Department of Anthropology, The Chinese University of Hong Kong) 
Time: 1:00 – 2:30 pm, 1 Apr 2016 (Friday) 
Venue: Room 401, Humanities Building, New Asia College, CUHK

****************************************************

This talk is part of a study on African migrants in Guangzhou. This part discusses how and why Africans present in China are assumed to be criminals and lower-class people by certain Chinese. While such prejudice towards Africans is traditionally considered to be racial discrimination based on their black skin colour, this talk argues that it is the presumption of low economic status of Africans, and their being newcomers in Chinese society, that Chinese discriminate against, rather than the black skin colour itself. This talk will explore its implication for China becoming an immigrant society.

ALL INTERESTED ARE WELCOME! 

(A light lunch will be served at 12:30 pm. First come first served.)
