Event description

Description

The Heritage of Cantonese Migration Tour is a special collaborative program organized by CCHSBC, UBC's Initiative for Student Teaching and Research in Chinese Canadian Studies (INSTRCC) and the Guangdong Qiaoxiang Research Center of Wuyi University.

Travel Dates: October 14 - 24, 2019

Unlike commercial tours or those organized by travel agencies, this special program has been organized by the top scholarly research center on Cantonese overseas migration in the world, and grows out of joint research collaborations between Wuyi University and UBC researchers such as Dr. Yu and his Chinese Canadian Stories research team. You will have the opportunity to explore and experience in an accessible and fun way the latest research perspectives on the history, cultures, and geographies of Cantonese migration from the 'Szeyup' or 'Four Counties' area of Canton (Guangdong) Province, the home region of the majority of the overseas Chinese who went to Canada in the 19th and 20th Century.

To learn more about this amazing opportunity, join us at our Information Session on April 1st at 6:30pm.
