Distinguished Lecture: Dr. Vivienne Poy

To celebrate the Asian Heritage Month in Canada 150, come join the Honourable Dr. Vivienne Poy for a special feature talk, The Asian Heritage Month and Chinese Diaspora. Dr. Poy will draw on her research in the book Heroes & Gamblers: Tales of Survival and Good Fortune of the Poy Family to provide a panoramic view of the Chinese diaspora, and zooms in on one family in the 19th and 20th centuries in Australia and North America. This talk will reveal the connections of such stories of horrors and heroism, struggles and fortunes to the Chinese diaspora in Canada, and the significance of the Asian Heritage Month.
