About Diaspora @ chinaSMACK
Diaspora @ chinaSMACK Diaspora @ chinaSMACK Diaspora @ chinaSMACK is a separate section of chinaSMACK. Whereas the original chinaSMACK looks at modern mainland Chinese society and Chinese people through translations of what is popular or trending on the Chinese-language internet, Diaspora @ chinaSMACK features the personal experiences, opinions, and perspectives of overseas Chinese people and communities. This includes foreign-born ethnic Chinese, Chinese immigrants, or mixed-race Chinese individuals in countries all around the world, both men and women, young and old, the extraordinary and notable but also the ordinary and normal. Historical Chinese immigration has created a vast Chinese diaspora throughout the world estimated to number over 40 million, a phenomenon that has become an inseparable part of the identity and fabric of modern Chinese society. chinaSMACK believes that the differences and similarities between overseas Chinese and the Chinese “back home” are both instructive and compelling. But chinaSMACK also believes that overseas Chinese, while connected, are also separate, and with that they have their own stories stories to tell, their own trials, and their own triumphs.
