The Worldly Engagement of Maritime South China: A Strategic Cultural Mapping

South China has long engaged with the circulation of goods, people, and ideas along the Maritime Silk Road. These movements over the centuries have bridged continents from Asia to Africa. In this talk, Helen F. Siu discusses historical layers of economic and cultural resources, multi-ethnic identities in trading hubs, and the strategic footprints of mobile populations between south China and the inter-Asian world. She also discusses China’s ambitious Belt and Road initiative, which stresses the building of hardware and infrastructure but also requires areas of development to support China’s ambitious global march—not without potential contestations.
