Harry Deng, a student at Simon Fraser University, is the recipient of a $1,000 scholarship in the senior division for his essay “Vancouver’s Chinatown: Literary Mappings of Seclusion.” His essay was written for History 436 taught by Dr. Katie McCullough.
Dr. McCullough caught up with Harry and interviewed him about his project.
Harry Deng was a 4th year student at Simon Fraser University where he studied history and international studies with a concentration in comparative world politics, culture, and society.
His main research interest is in examining the different layers of authority within different contexts — specifically how both state and non-state actors, processes, and figures of power contribute to the nation building exercise.
Harry will be pursuing a master’s degree in public policy and global affairs at the University of British Columbia starting in September 2020. Watch for his article to be published in an upcoming issue of British Columbia History.
We wish you the best of luck!
