• How (in)visible is British Chinese community in the UK? Using health and physical cultures as an example from her current Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship project to think about race/ethnicity.
• How is the UK context different to those in Australia when we think about ethnicity/race and Chineseness?
• What can we collectively think through as researchers in examining Chinese diaspora, race/ethnicity, diversity and inclusion in the midst of societal issues such as Black Lives Matters, Hong Kong’s National Security Law and COVID-19 that transverse local and global contexts?
