It’s that time of year for Chinese history and heritage researchers, archaeologists, academics, museum and collection managers, family history researchers and genealogists to attend the sixth biennial “no fuss” conference presented by CHINA INC.

This conference aims to explore themes of settling vs sojourning; transplantation vs transnationalism across the diverse northern landscape of Australia with an underlying aim to demonstrate connections between China, northern Australia, Asia Pacific and the nation.

We encourage attendance and participation by emerging scholars for whom it is a great presentation opportunity and warmly welcome family historians and genealogists to whom we have dedicated a session on Chinese families and Chinese family history.
