The workshop Unearthing Chinese Australia has been organised to mark the establishment of the Museum of Chinese in Australia. MOCA will be housed in a dedicated community space in the Haymarket district of Sydney, the city’s oldest surviving, and largest, Chinatown. The Museum will create a centre for discovery, preservation and promotion of the history, heritage and material culture of the Chinese in Australia. It will play an important role in communicating the story of Chinese settlers and their descendants for future generations. This workshop gathers emerging and established research in this timely field, and includes glimpses of Chinese Australian history in the material collections of Australia.
