Abstract

Keynote Speech: The speech starts with a review of Wendy’s personal journey as a female Australian-New Zealand-Chinese academic working in the research fields of migration, ageing and mental health. Employing three theories—Confucianism, transnationalism and volunteerism—the speech focuses on the theme that the past remains in the present and informs the future. Building upon three concepts—Chineseness, hybridity and community—that are related to Wendy’s identity, the speech provides a discussion on the multiple self and how Wendy positions herself between the West and the East.
