Webinar – Standing Up To Sinophobia: From Fu Manchu to Bat Soup

Tuesday 6 April 2021, 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm GMT, online (UK)


SACU has organised the event to contribute to the ongoing hard work of CARG and others in tackling racism against people of Chinese heritage

The increase in hate crime against Chinese people is alarming. As an organisation with the mission to build friendship and understanding between the peoples of China and the UK, it is important that SACU provides a platform to facilitate dialogue to understand this terrible feature of British society and work with others to tackle it.

Our distinguished panel includes:

  • Dr Diana Yeh Senior Lecturer in Sociology, Culture and the Creative Industries and Associate Dean (EDI), School of Arts and Social Sciences, City, University of London
  • Anna Chen Chinese British writer, poet and broadcaster who blogs as Madam Miaow @MadamMiaow
  • Yeow Poon Chair of the Chinese Community Centre–Birmingham, a leading member of CARG (Covid-19 Anti-Racism Group)
  • Sabby Dhalu Co-convenor of Stand Up to Racism
  • Dr Jenny Clegg SACU Vice-President will open the event with a presentation on Fu Manchu

The event will close with a set from Ken Cheng, a British born Chinese professional poker player and comedian, a BBC New Comedy Award finalist who explores Sinophobia through his art.

This event is Free.

Please join us (Zoom link will be sent nearer the time).

There will be a short time for Questions and Answers (send to membership@sacu.org.uk in advance).
