(not crazy font plz!)

This week I chatted to Katherine Ka Yi Liu about what she’s been working on recently. Katherine has a long-standing interest in language and identity and the mutations they have been subjected to under colonialism.

We talk about the Chinese language, her life in Hong-Kong, Chinese-British mashup meals and the colonial past of the city. Through anecdotal experience Katherine talks me through the changes in her cultural history and helps trace a path to the pressures of assimilation and cultural erasure written into globalisation.
