“Locating Kinship Across Space and Time,” the conference aims to explore how Chinese American women, both as historical subjects and contemporary practitioners of history, have forged interpersonal connections, fostered care, and facilitated community.

This conference is sponsored by the 1882 Foundation, the Chinese American Museum DC, and the Ruth H. Kuo and Rhoda How Memorial Foundation.

We will welcome scholars, filmmakers, creatives, and community members alike to share their work exploring the multifaceted and complex experiences of Chinese American women. Topics include the figures of Soo Yong and Anna May Wong, Chinese Americans in 1900’s mass entertainment, Chinese American Hawai’i-based labor organizer Ah Quon McElrath, and the legacies of Chinese American women filmmakers, with many more subjects still to come.
