cfp CHINA inc“Northern Links: Protecting their interests and pushing back”    

The Seventh“no fuss” Conference

 3rd-4th March 2018  |  Townsville, Queensland 

Organised by: Chinese Heritage in Northern Australia Inc (CHINA Inc)

It’s that time of year for Chinese history and heritage researchers, archaeologists, academics, museum and collection managers, family history researchers and genealogists to attend the seventh biennial “no fuss” conference presented by CHINA INC.


This conference aims to explore themes of settlement, adaption, integration, solutions and creative responses to institutional impediments imposed on the Chinese community. We accept a broad interpretation of our theme, as well as creative fringe ideas! We are not limited to northern Australia, but papers must reflect a link to the deep north!

We encourage attendance and participation by emerging scholars for whom it is a great presentation opportunity and warmly welcome family historians and genealogists to whom we have dedicated a session on Chinese families and Chinese family history.

Many of you will know CHINA Inc is an excellent opportunity to meet with old friends, researchers, academics and family historians. It is also an excellent opportunity for students to present in a friendly environment with two student bursaries on offer.

The keynote speaker Daphne Lowe Kelley will bring great depth and observation to the proceedings having attended nearly every conference.
