China in Latin America
Organised by The UCL China Centre for Health and Humanity, and The UCL Centre for Transnational History. Supported by GCII
21st May, 2013: 10 a.m.-5.p.m.
Room 103, UCL Institute of the Americas
51 Gordon Square, London, WC1H 0PQ
This one-day conference convenes specialists working on important aspects of China’s involvement with Latin America. The programme will begin with a history of the Chinese diaspora focussing on the different patterns of migration taken by Chinese workers on their journey to the Americas. Against this background speakers will then examine Sino-Latin American relations in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. This theme will be analysed through the two sides’ respective political economies and through the impact of China’s investments on emerging markets. Health diplomacy offers a final perspective through which to trace China in Latin America. The Conference is free to students and academics.
