Featuring the Chinese Australian Heritage Website, Intersections Journal, and AsiaLink Arts

Chinese Australian Heritage Website

Anyone interested in Chinese community history should take a look at a
fruitful new website that focuses on the history of Australia's Chinese
communities: http://www.chaf.lib.latrobe.edu.au.

The site is a one-stop shop for exploring Chinese-Australian Heritage.
Designed basically as a research-site, it houses text and image databases,
introduces bibliographies and research aids, provides information on
conferences and exhibitions, offers links to relevant museums, libraries,
archives, community centers, university departments, historical societies
and other web sites, and carries a range of personal stories and graphics.

The site highlights the integral part played by Chinese Australians in
the post-settlement history of the country. It has been set up with the aim
of promoting Chinese Australian studies in Australia, and contributing to a
growing field of research and discussion on the history of the Chinese
diaspora more generally. It will appeal to academic researchers,
genealogists, heritage consultants, amateur researchers, archivists,
librarians, school and college students, and inquisitive browsers.

A special feature of the site is an online index to a famous Chinese
Australian newspaper  (set up with the support of the reformer Liang
Qichao) that ran from 1898 to 1936. The index to the Tung Wah Times is
still under development. Early years can be accessed directly at:

The site has been developed by La Trobe University, the Melbourne Chinese
Museum and the Australian Studies Centre of East China Normal University in
Shanghai, with core support from the National Council for the Centenary of

Comments on the site, and suggestions for further links, are most welcome.
