What is it Like to be an African in China?
Adams Bodomo, FSI-Humanities Center International Visitor, 2011-12,Stanford University
Adams Bodomo will look at what has often been termed "Africa's newest diaspora" by reviewing contemporary Africa - China relations. Closer official interactions between these two areas have led to an increasing number of Africans visiting, settling, and forming communities in China. Bodomo will share the results of a study he undertook with 700 Africans across six main Chinese cities. The research addresses many aspects of everyday life among Africans in China, from why Africans go to China to how they are received by the Chinese state. This work has theoretical implications for cross-cultural and cross-linguistic studies in an era of globalization.
