Event Description

Full Description:
Gordon Mathews is Professor and Chair in the Anthropology Department at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. This talk is based on his forthcoming book of the talk's title (University of Chicago Press, 2017). In this talk, based on research conducted along with Lin Dan and Yang Yang in 2012-2015, Professor Mathews explores the relations between these Africans and Arabs and the Chinese residents of Guangzhou, looking at such areas as legal/illegal residence status, low-end globalization in its Guangzhou manifestations, business relations and trust between Africans/Arabs and Chinese, romantic relations between Africans/Arabs and Chinese, and religious belief and its complications, with arguments for and against the prospect of a multicultural and global future China.
