NEW ASIA, NEW ZEALAND - Writers & Readers, Wellington

How does New Zealand’s increasingly diverse population engage on and offshore with “Asia”?

In Old Asian, New Asian, writer Emma Ng discusses biculturalism as a relationship between tangata whenua (local people) and tauiwi (foreigners). She and novelists Brannavan Gnanalingam (Sodden Downstream) and Rajorshi Chakraborti (The Man Who Would Not See) talk about their identity as New Zealanders, and their (respectively) Chinese, Sri Lankan and Indian roots.
