Glimpses of Gold

Curious about her own cultural past, Celia embarks on a journey to learn more about what life was like for early Chinese settlers in Aotearoa New Zealand. 

Glimpses of Gold” takes a look at Otago’s early Chinese gold-mining community. In this episode, Celia talks to Dr Charlotte King about what bioarchaeological science has uncovered about the lives of early Chinese gold-miners, and to Mr Leslie Wong about Chinese beliefs on the after-life.

This episode was written and produced by Celia Lie, a postgraduate Science Communication student at the University of Otago, under the guidance of Professor Nancy Longnecker, with technical support from Teaching Fellow Steve Ting.

Celia is a Chinese New Zealander, resident of Ōtepoti Dunedin, and mum of two human children and one dog. She enjoys running and biking, and hates writing bios. This is her first foray into the wonderful world of podcasting. “Glimpses of Gold” was created as part of an assignment for a postgraduate paper in the Department of Science Communication at the University of Otago.
