The Jade Peony Walking Tour of Vancouver's Chinatown

  • Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden 578 Carrall Street Vancouver, BC, V6B 5K2 Canada (map)

In partnership with the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden's Education program and historian John Atkin, I will be taking my ENGL 2301: Canadian Literature in English students into the field to study Vancouver's Chinatown. This literary and historic walking tour will guide students through the sites featured in Wayson Choy's novel, The Jade Peony (1995). They will be blogging and creating GIS maps in response.
