Overseas Chinese State Farms and Refugee Resettlement in the People's Republic of China

This research project, funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) examines political, social and cultural aspects of the resettlement of tens of thousands of ethnic Chinese refugees from Southeast Asia (mainly Indonesia and Malaysia) on specially created "Overseas Chinese State Farms" in the People's Republic of China from the 1950s through the 1970s. This research for this project is ongoing and is expected to culminate in a major monograph.
