Welcome to the Chinese American Women in History Conference

CAWH Conference flyer

UCA is honoured to co-sponsor the Chinese American Women in History (CAWH) Conference, coming soon to Washington, D.C.

The 1882 Foundation and the Chinese American Museum DC present a conference on CAWH, exploring a century of experiences framed by the enactment of the 1875 Page Act, that targeted Chinese women for exclusion from the US, and the 1965 Hart-Celler Act, landmark immigration reform that finally enabled migration of Chinese spouses and families.

The conference will be held in Washington, DC, October 24-26, 2019 at three convenient locations in a 2-block radius: the Chinese American Museum, the historic Charles Sumner School Museum and Archives, and University of California Washington Center. The conference will include scholarly panels, community storytelling, and film screenings that feature the pioneering work of Chinese American women filmmakers.

The conference is open to anyone interested in the topic whether as professional scholars or for personal curiosity. For more information and registration for all programs ($50 per person), click the registration link here:
