Female Chinese Australians: A Feminist Tale of Multiculturalism

Producer: Dallas Rogers

Female Chinese Australians: A Feminist Tale of Multiculturalism

Stella Sun is a Chinese Australian woman who was born on Thursday Island in 1931. Stella travelled to mainland Australia when she was 17 years old. Dr Alanna Kamp has been interviewing women like Stella about their experiences of belonging and exclusion as female Chinese Australians during the White Australia Policy era.

The women Alanna is interviewing piece many memories together to tell rich stories about migration, settlement and family. In this episode, Dallas talks to Alanna about researching Chinese Australian women during the White Australia period. He learns she is putting these women front and centre of her research to produce a feminist reading of about the birth of Australian multiculturalism.

F1000007-Edit-2Alanna Kamp (BA BSc (UNSW); PhD (WSU)) is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Urban Research Program/School of Social Sciences and Psychology, Western Sydney University (WSU). As an historical and cultural geographer, Alanna is interested in feminist and postcolonial understandings of the migrant experience and attitudes to immigration in Sydney. She is particularly interested in the ways in which historical geographies of migrant experience have contemporary relevance and shape current community experiences and identities. Alanna is also a member of the Challenging Racism Project at WSU.

Recent publications include:

The virtues and challenges of comparative analyses of immigration, migrant settlement and transnationalism (2015)

FEATURED

Dr Abishek Sankathumar completed his PhD at Griffith University and his research investigates the role of natural dietary antioxidant compounds in reducing the risk factors of cardiovascular and metabolic diseases.

Abishek currently is a lecturer and researcher in haematology and blood banking at Charles Sturt Univerisity [CSU] School of Biomedical Sciences. During his research tenure, Abishek has led nationally registered human clinical trials investigating the feasibility and efficacy of natural antioxidant compounds as therapeutic alternatives in diverse pro-thrombotic populations. His research focus is strongly aligned to the objectives of the ARC ITTC Functional Grains Centre.

Abishek’s research interests include:

  • To evaluate the anti-diabetic, anti-obesity and cardio-protective properties of polyphenols present in grains and pulses
  • Antiplatelet therapy versus dietary antioxidants in metabolic syndrome
  • To investigate the mechanisms involved in platelet activity under oxidative stress
  • To evaluate the effect of diet and life-style on platelet function
