During the 2022 summer vacation, led by Pan Xiangyu—deputy secretary of the Faculty of Asian Languages and Cultures—members of the key provincial-level social practice team went to the city of Shantou to carry out field interviews and research activities. The slogan of the team is “Spreading Lingnan culture in multiple languages, discovering the Chaoshan flavor in people’s hearts.”
“A Bite of Chaoshan” focuses on Chaoshan cuisine. It explores the history and food culture of the hometown of many overseas Chinese in a bid to arouse nostalgia and patriotism in their hearts, emboldening the memory they have of their hometown to build an interactive platform of "food culture and kinship". In this way, it will help attract and rally overseas Chinese, and contribute to the economic development of the Chaoshan region.
