On February 29, 2012, I presented “Intercultural weddings and the simultaneous display of multiple identities” to the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information at Nanyang Technological University, in Singapore.

Nanyang Technological UniversityMy thanks to Dr. Vivian Hsueh-hua Chen for organizing the event, and to her colleagues and graduate students who showed up even though my visit fell during a break in classes. While there I had lunch with Dr. Chen and several members of her research team (Gina Cordero-Rahman and Zhou Qiongyuan), met her colleague, Dr. Brenda Chan, and received a tour of the outstanding media facilities at the School. (The photo above shows Drs. Chan, Chen, and Leeds-Hurwitz, as well as Gina and Qiongyuan. The one below shows Drs. Chen and Leeds-Hurwitz.) I walked away with lots of notes about potential connections to be made to researchers here, and look forward to continued contact in the future.
