Diana runs a workshop and gives a public talk
In March, drawing on her research on constructions of ‘British Chinese’ culture, Diana Yeh ran a half-day workshop on Researching British Chinese Heritage for volunteers working for the charity Ming Ai at Regents University.
This followed her public talk earlier in the year on her book, The Happy Hsiungs: Performing China and the Struggle for Modernity (2014), to the Meridian Society at University at Westminster. She was joined by the author Frances Wood and also by the director Natasha Betteridge and Jennifer Lim of Moongate Productions, who, prompted by Diana’s research, are now seeking to revive S.I. Hsiung’s play Lady Precious Stream with a full East Asian cast.
