Chinese American Women in History Conference 2023

Locating Kinship Across Space and Time”

October 5-7, 2023

Washington DC and Virtual

The 1882 Foundation invites you to register for the second Chinese American Women in History conference, to be held in Washington DC this fall. Themed, “Locating Kinship Across Space and Time,” the conference aims to explore how Chinese American women, both as historical subjects and contemporary practitioners of history, have forged interpersonal connections, fostered care, and facilitated community. 

They will welcome scholars, filmmakers, creatives, and community members alike to share their work exploring the multifaceted and complex experiences of Chinese American women. Topics include the figures of Soo Yong and Anna May Wong, Chinese Americans in 1900’s mass entertainment, Chinese American Hawai’i-based labor organizer Ah Quon McElrath, and the legacies of Chinese American women filmmakers, with many more subjects still to come. 

Set at cultural institutions across Washington DC, the conference utilizes the breadth and depth of the 1882 Foundation’s partnerships with institutions, organizations, and individuals alike pursuing Asian American public history in the District and nationally.

  • Day One (October 5th) at the Chinese American Museum DC & the Charles Sumner School Museum and Archives

  • Day Two (October 6th) at the Charles Sumner School Museum and Archives

  • Day Three (October 7th) at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Library and the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery
