My name is Sophie and I am half Chinese, half English. I am a History student at the University of York researching the cultural identity of individuals of mixed Chinese and Western parentage in post-war Brtiain for my History dissertation project.
The Chinese in Britain have been given very little attention compared to other ethnic minorities, and no one has actually looked at the experiences of mixed Chinese in Britain. This is something I've always wanted to learn more about and hopefully this project will encourage further discussion on the topic. But I haven't made my life easy by choosing a topic that no one has written about before.
So I'm asking for your help. If you are a Chinese Eurasian or you know a Chinese Eurasian that grew up in Britain that would like to be involved, please message me or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is completely up to you how much you get involved. You could just email me about some of your experiences, or alternatively I have an open ended questionnaire which you could fill out. However, I would be grateful for any contact at this stage.
Thanks for your time. Look forward to hearing from you, Sophie
