High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles Wang Gungwu, CBE
(simplified Chinese: pinyin: Wang G ngw ) (born 9 October 1930) is
an academic who has studied and written about the Chinese diaspora,
although he has objected to the use of the word diaspora to
describe the migration of Chinese from China, because it is
inaccurate and has been used to perpetuate fears of a "Chinese
threat." He was born in Surabaya, Indonesia, and grew up in Ipoh,
Malaysia. He studied history in the University of Malaya,
Singapore, where he received both his Bachelor and Masters degrees.
He holds a Ph.D. from the School of Oriental and African Studies,
University of London (1957) for his thesis on The structure of
power in North China during the Five Dynasties. He is a former
teacher at the University of Malaya (in both Singapore and Kuala
Lumpur) before going to Canberra in 1968 to become Professor of Far
Eastern History in the Research School of Pacific and Asian Studies
at Australian National University. He was Vice-Chancellor of the
University of Hong Kong from 1986 to 1995.
