Hong Kong Keywords Workshop 2018
 
 
Date: 13 June 2018 
 
Hong Kong Studies, School of Modern Languages and Cultures HKU has the pleasure of inviting you to the Workshop: 

Hong Kong Keywords Workshop 2018 

13 June 2018

Abstracts due 4 May 2018:
Inheritance has never been a taken-for-granted progression, especially from the myriad stories and experiences in the production and reception of Hong Kong popular cultures.  Between coloniality and nationality, locality and transnationality, high and low, niche and mass as well as decent and obscene, Hong Kong popular cultures have been struggling along contesting boundaries in screen, sound, linguistic and performing media.  If to inherit is to re-situate Hong Kong popular cultures from the intersecting contours of geopolitics and histories, to think and imagine beyond such confines may help to recharge the momentum in reconfiguring our pop cultural imaginaries and for resisting against the idea that Hong Kong popular cultures are dying.

Initiated for undergraduate and postgraduate students, a single day bilingual workshop on “Cultures Reimagined: Inheritance in Hong Kong Popular Cultures” will be held on 13 June 2018 (Wed) at the University of Hong Kong.  Each participant will present his/her selected keyword related to Hong Kong popular cultures in Cantonese, Mandarin or English.  Grouped in similar topics and themes, each of the speakers in a panel will have 15 to 20 minutes for presentation, followed by a 15 minutes Q and A session.

Submission of Abstract:
Please limit your abstract to 200 to 300 words in English or Chinese. Your abstract should illustrate the correlation between your keyword and specific context(s) of Hong Kong popular cultures.  Please submit via email to keywordsasia@gmail.com on or before 4 May 2018 (Fri).  Results will be announced by mid-May 2018.  

對香港流行文化的發展而言,傳承從來不是一種理所當然的預期。香港流行文化的生產和傳播過程,一直在殖民性與國族性、本土與跨國、高雅與低俗、小眾與普及以及正派與不雅等對立矛盾之中,在光影、音韻、文字及表演等媒體邊界上掙扎徘徊。假若傳承的機遇,是建基於為香港流行文化在地緣政治和歷史發展的歧義上另闢蹊徑,重新審視其生產方式、傳播方法及發展源流期望能為消亡中的香港流行文化,注入想像及批判的新動力。

為本科生和研究生而設的「文化再想像:香港流行文化的民間傳承」關鍵詞工作坊將於2018年6月13日(星期三)在香港大學舉行。每位參加講者可選擇以粵語、國語或英語闡述其所建立的關鍵詞與香港流行文化的關係。各組別將依題材及範圍劃分。每位講者的發言時間為15至20分鐘,各組別附設15分鐘的答問環節。

提交摘要:
請以英文或中文撰寫關鍵詞摘要,以200至300字為限。請於2018年5月4日(星期五)或之前通過電子郵件方式提交至 keywordsasia@gmail.com。結果將在2018年5月中旬公布。
