The History of the NZ China Friendship Society
Nigel Murphy will present on the history of the New Zealand China Friendship Society.
Nigel has studied Chinese New Zealand history for around 40 years and has visited China on a number of occasions. He worked at the Alexander Turnbull Library for some 25 years and at the Waitangi Tribunal as a report writer. His MA thesis was on how New Zealand‟s national identity played a key role in its attitude to Chinese people, both in New Zealand and in China itself. He has lectured and published on a wide range of aspects of the Chinese New Zealand experience.
An optional buffet meal will follow the meeting at 7pm, for $13 each. Please pay at the door or electronically.
