    Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article reviewpeer-review


    In the two one-hour episodes of Waltzing the Dragon (2019), made for ABC television, Benjamin Law attempts to make sense of the place of Chinese in Australia’s past, present and future. Law approaches this as both a personal journey, reflecting on his parents’ experience of migration and his childhood growing up as a Chinese Australian, and a physical journey, visiting the places Chinese worked and settled in Australia and returning with his parents to their ancestral villages. Along the journey, historians Sophie Couchman, Sophie Loy-Wilson and John Fitzgerald provide context and comment.
