Series

Asian Pathways Research Lab

Description

Pathways Magazine presents collections of diverse stories of peoples’ mobilities and identities from, between, and within Asia and Canada, produced by undergraduate students working in the Asian Pathways Research Lab. In the Spring 2018 volume of Pathways, we delve into the stories of thirteen pairs of Chinese-Canadian mothers and daughters, exploring their relationships, their mobilities, and their process of negotiating specifically gendered Chinese-Canadian identities across generations and geographies. This research is inspired by the work of Harriet Evans, whose research about the transformation of mother-daughter relationships in the context of post-Cultural Revolution urban China taught us about the connections between political change, social restructuring, and changing family dynamics and intimate relationships. To this body of knowledge, we contribute these thirteen stories, all of which add to the aforementioned context the additional experience of transnational family immigration to Canada. In this session, our undergraduate researchers will present their findings and experiences working at the Asian Pathways Research Lab.
