Aloha kakahiaka from Hawaii USA!
My next guest on the Saturday, April 15, 2017 broadcast of Marvels of China: Pathways to the Pacific Rim is Professor Jonathan Lee of San Francisco State University's Asian American Studies Program.
Professor Lee is the primary organizer of a fascinating conference scheduled for October 6-8, 2017.
"This Land Is Our Land": Chinese Pluralities Through the Americas, An International Conference of the Chinese Historical Society of the Americas (click here to the conference link) sounded fascinating to me -and I think it will be to you, too.
The conference is open to the public and organized by the Chinese Historical Society of America in San Francisco, California.
The basis of the conference "seeks to unpack, (re)examine, re(focus), (re)calibrate, and (re)examine the pluralities of "Chinese" experiences within, among, and through the Americas-historically and presently. We enjoin participants to take a global view of the Chinese experience in the Americas. The primary focus of this Conference is to research on any and all aspects of Chinese American history, Chinese American studies, and Chinese in the Americas."
What else do we have on tap for you?

On Historical Notes you'll hear about Hazel Ying Lee, the first Chinese American woman to fly for the U.S. military during World War II.
After my recent first-ever visit to San Francisco's Chinatown I decided to share some of what I learned about this oldest such Chinatown in North America on Chinese Fun Facts.
As a confessed foodie I shared that nothing comes between me and my dim sum on Chopsticks.
