CONFERENCE UPDATE - Rediscovered Past: Chinese Heritage in Northern Australia (16-17 Feb 2008; Cairns, Qld)

The date, venue and fees for the upcoming 'Rediscovered Past: Chinese Heritage in Northern Australia' have now been finalised. The conference is to be held at the Cairns Public Library on 16-17 February 2008. This is also a gentle reminder to all who are interested in attending or presenting a paper to let the organisers know by December 2007 if possible so program and numbers can be finalised. Please feel free to send this message on to anyone else who you think might be interested.

Regarding the papers and presentations, we welcome people from a wide range of backgrounds, not just the academic, to get involved. Those of you who don't feel up to writing a formal paper but feel that you have something interesting and stimulating to add to the research on Chinese heritage in northern Australia can still consider giving a talk. China Inc can provide feedback and guidance to assist in developing your talk if required. Formal papers will only be sought from those who wish to have their presentations published in the Conference Proceedings volume that will be produced afterwards.

Hope to see you all there

Kevin Rains
Secretary, CHINA Inc.
