This study examines the heterogeneous subethnic identities of the Chinese diasporas and their spatial manifestation, using Hong Kong as a case. Within its colonial connections and strategic location, Hong Kong has functioned as a center of origin and destination in the transnational movement of the Chinese diaspora. An uneven geography of subethnicity is revealed, polarized by the elite English and Shangainese on the one end and the local Kejia people on the other end.
