Speaker bios:

Dr. Nora Angeles is Associate Professor at the School of Community and Regional Planning and the Gender, Race, Sexuality and Social Justice Undergraduate Program. Her continuing research and interests are on community and international development studies and social policy, participatory planning and governance, participatory action research, and the politics of transnational feminist networks, women’s movements and agrarian issues, particularly in the Southeast Asian region.

Dr. Henry Yu is the Director of the Initiative for Student Teaching and Research on Chinese Canadians (INSTRCC) and the Principal of St. John’s College at UBC, as well as a Board Member of the Chinese Canadian Historical Society of British Columbia (CCHSBC). He is involved in the collaborative effort to reimagine the history of Vancouver and of British Columbia through the concept of “Pacific Canada,” a perspective that focuses on how migrants from Asia, Europe, and other parts of the Americas engaged with each other and with First Nations peoples historically. Dr. Yu has also participated in the Historical Discrimination Against Chinese Peoples Advisory Committee which considered the City of Vancouver’s formal civic apology for the City’s role in legislating and supporting historical anti-Chinese racism and discrimination.
