Dr Christopher Cheng knows firsthand the double pains of being disconnected from his Chinese roots, while at the same time not being firmly grounded in his parents’ immigrant country of Australia. For not quite a decade since 2008, he has been privileged to further his education in Hong Kong and southern China after completing the first part of his architectural degree in Brisbane, Australia. When not studying, he has been wandering around his ancestral land in southern China. In 2017, he joined the China–Australian Heritage Corridor team as a doctoral student and has been researching and publishing his field observations in academic and popular outlets, so that other “children in the diaspora” can also benefit. When he’s not researching, Christopher writes poems in Chinese, chanted in Cantonese to rhyme.
This event will be held online via the ZOOM platform.
