Grace Gassin

Grace is Curator Asian New Zealand Histories at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. Her wide-ranging research interests encompass the historical and contemporary experiences of Asian diaspora communities in Aotearoa New Zealand and Australia, racism and anti-racism, and issues of national belonging/exclusion in Aotearoa. Grace takes a community-engaged, social justice approach to her work within and outside the museum; in the context of the Covid-19, this has seen her engaged in research and collection work highlighting under-represented community responses to the pandemic.
