Suffolk University Asian Studies Department Director Da Zheng will be speaking this Saturday on “Chiang Yee’s Transnational Experiences.” He will describe Chiang Yee’s personal encounters with racial exclusion and immigration laws, displacement, exile, and the pain he experienced while maintaining a popular public image. The talk is sponsored by the Chinese Historical Society of New England (CHSNE), of which Dr. Zhang is a board member. Dr. Zheng is the world’s foremost expert on Chiang Yee, an important writer, commentator and painter, who has ties to Boston and to New York City, as well as to England, where he spent many years of his life.

Dr. Zhang also recently spoke at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

The talk is free and open to the public, and will be moderated by Dr. Peter Kiang from the Asian American Studies Program at UMass Boston. To reserve your seat, please send an email to info@chsne.org.

This talk is funded in part by Mass Humanities and the Wang Foundation, and is co-sponsored by BCNC. Both CHSNE and BCNC are community outreach partners of The Rosenberg Institute at Suffolk University.
