Monash Meets Malthouse Theatre / Little Emperors

Presented in partnership with Monash University

The Centre for Theatre and Performance at Monash University presents a Monash Meets Malthouse Theatre panel on Little Emperors. 

“…after nearly three years (of living in Australia), I could not find peace again. I don't know whether this has anything to do with being a one child. Yes, I am the only child in the family and my parents gave me a lot of financial support during my two years' studies. But I guess being the one child, I do have a deep sense of guilt when I try to pursue my life regardless how they feel…”

- Danqi Hu

Join Senior Lecturer Stuart Grant in conversation with fellow lecturer Xin Gu and Masters graduate Dangi Hu, both children of the one child policy, to discuss the policy and the experience of the contemporary Chinese diaspora.

 

Stuart Grant is a Senior Lecture at CTP, wh has been teaching, playing music and developing networks in China. He recently released the documentary film, “Which Way Is China?”

 

Xin Gu is a lecturer in the school of Media, Film and Journalism at Monash University. Born in Shanghai in 1978, Xin moved to Australia in 2008 and has been exploring emergent cultural, economic and political linkages between the two countries.

 

Danqi Hu has just completed her Master’s degree in Cultural Economies at Monash University. After a spell in the advertising industry, Danqi moved to Australia approximately three years ago.
