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 on or before 4 May 2018 (Fri).  Results will be announced by mid-May 2018.
