Following on from the success of the Dragon Tails conferences at Ballarat (2009), Melbourne (2011) and Wollongong (2013), we held, in tropical Queensland, the fourth Dragon Tails, an Australasian conference on overseas Chinese history and heritage.


Professor Evelyn Hu-DeHart from Brown University, USA, was keynote speaker. Professor Hu-DeHart is Professor of History and American Studies, and Director, Consortium of Advanced Studies in Cuba.


The main theme of Dragon Tails 2015 was the historical experiences and heritage of Chinese in the tropics, both in Australasia and globally. The program also included other topics that discussed the histories and heritage of Chinese people, their descendants and their associates, in other parts of Australasia and the world.


The Dragon Tails conferences promote research into the histories and heritage of Chinese people, their descendants and their associates, in Australasia (Australia and New Zealand). The conferences also encourage awareness of the connections of Chinese in Australasia with the histories of Chinese people, their descendants and their associates in other countries.


Dragon Tails conferences encourage an approach to history which combines the skills and interests of academic, community, local, family, professional, independent and amateur historians, archaeologists and heritage workers, as well as other professionals, academics and writers with an express interest in this field of research.
