Dr. Charles Hughes



For the next event in the “Memphis Centered” speaker series,
we are proud to welcome our own Dr. Shaolu Yu. Dr. Yu, an urban
geographer and Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Urban
Studies, will speak on her ongoing research into both historical
and contemporary Chinese immigrants and Chinese American
communities in the Mid-South. Although these experiences have
been obscured in discussions of the Memphis area, Yu will
demonstrate that they reveal a tight-knit and active community
that has shaped this region in crucial ways. It is sure to be an
engaging and thought-provoking presentation.

This event is free and open to the public. No reservations are
