對話 | W[H]O YO[U] [A]RE

[English description below]

我是誰?我們是誰?
「華人」「華裔」「華僑」「華族」「大中華」「中華兒女」乃至「反華勢力」……
不論你是來自世界上哪一個華人社區,在你成長、遷移、與其他族群打交道的時候,你的身上肯定曾被標記過以上一個或多個身份標籤。
你可能為這個身份感到過自豪,也可能感到過困惑,也可能嘗試過遠離它。它似乎是一個文化概念,又似乎是血統的,又似乎是政治的……
那麼,你是誰?

歡迎來到對話。在這裡,我們了解彼此,了解自己。
9月27日,在老地方C. K. Choi Building,我們不見不散。
活動免費,敬備點心。

【活動形式】
活動將以小組討論+大組討論的形式進行。你不需要準備任何發言,我們鼓勵你將自己的經歷和對「華人」這一概念的思考結合起來,與大家在相互尊重的基礎上交流想法。你可以使用你最熟悉的語言(國/普、粵、英)進行分享,我們將提供翻譯。兩組討論之間將有茶敘時間。

【關於對話】
UBC對話成立於2014年,是一個完全由學生主導的社團。無論你是來自陸、港、澳、台、加、東南亞或是其他國家或地區,也無論你的身份認同為何,只要你對分享或傾聽有關「華人」話題的討論有興趣,我們都歡迎你來參與我們的活動,並在活動中和來自不同背景的朋友建立友誼,擦出思想的火花。

What is “Hua”?

Here in Vancouver, we encounter “Chinese” every day: “Chinese people” “Chinese culture” “Chinese Canadian” “culturally Chinese” “Chinatown” and apparently “Chinese” people identifying themselves “I am Chinese” or “I am not Chinese”. The definition of “Chinese” seems problematic.

At the same time, the Chinese term “Hua” is rarely used in English while it is often used by Chinese communities around the world as an identity marker that attempts to transcend political boundaries—“Hongkonger” “Taiwanese” “Canadian” etc. However, the identity of “Hua” is also problematic: it has been adopted, redefined or rejected by members of different Chinese communities, and it has been used as a cultural, ethnic and political concept for various interests.

So, who are you?

On Tuesday, Sept 27, join us in an discussion at C. K. Choi Building to exchange your views on the identity of “Hua” and “Chinese people”. We hope to promote understanding as well as critical thinking through sharing and listening to personal stories that shaped who we are today.

*The event is FREE and light refreshments will be provided.
**We encourage you to use the language you are most comfortable with. We will provide translation in the event.
