Chinese in the Mississippi Delta and Greater Memphis: An Evening with Shaolu Yu

Event date

-
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
    required.
