An upcoming workshop that’s part of the Asian Library’s 50th anniversary celebrations will focus on Chinese immigration patterns, aided by a head tax database that was launched in 2008.

The “Workshop on the Taishan and Zhongshan Immigrants in North America” will enable community members, UBC students and scholars from around the world to conduct research on the roots of immigrants from Guangdong, China, dating from 1885-1947.

The workshop will feature remarks from Lea Starr, Associate University Librarian, UBC Library; Henry Yu, Associate Professor, UBC Department of History; and Eleanor Yuen, Head of the Asian Library. There will also be a range of guest speakers.

The workshop takes place on Tuesday, May 18 at the Asian Centre, 1871 West Mall, UBC Vancouver campus. You can find out more about the event here.
