Welcome to our grand launch of the conferences series of Regional Studies on China by the HKU China Studies team! In the very first conference, we choose to focus on China’s North, a region encompassing areas conventionally known as Northeast China and Northwest China as well as Inner Mongolia. This is a region that bears great importance of historical and present-day China. This conference examines what constitutes China’s North, how to interpret its political, economic, social, and cultural characteristics, and how the region is connected to neighbouring territories, societies, and states.

The conference features presentations by scholars pioneering diverse approaches to research about China’s North, screenings of documentary films that bring the region to life, and an exhibition. All events are open to members of the HKU community, teachers and students from Hong Kong-area universities and secondary schools, as well as interested members from all sectors of the society.

As the first of many events that will showcase HKU China Studies’ strength on Regional Studies, this conference will be a valuable opportunity for participants to learn more about an area that is part of China’s Silk Road, a rich agricultural resource base, and the centre of industrial re-development. For more information, please contact our conference committee at zhoucyi@hku.hk (Miss Chengyi ZHOU) or visit our website: http://www.regionalstudiesofchina.net

歡迎蒞臨由香港大學中國研究項目團隊舉辦的“中國區域研究”系列會議的開幕盛典!在首屆會議中,我們將聚焦於一個更廣義的“中國北方”,範圍包括傳統認為的中國東北、西北和內蒙古地區。中國北方對中國的歷史與今天具有至關重要的意義。會議將探討中國北方的構成,如何詮釋她的政治、經濟、社會、文化等特質,以及她如何與毗鄰地區、社群和國家聯繫互動。

本屆會議很榮幸地邀請到了中國北方研究領域中的多位重要專家學者。他們將分享各自研究中開創的多樣路徑。此外,會議期間將常設“中國北方”展覽,並展播反映當地生活的紀錄片。所有活動均向香港大學師生開放。我們同時歡迎本港各所大專院校與中學的老師和同學們,以及感興趣的社會各界人士參與交流。

本次會議,作為港大中國研究團隊在區域研究領域隆重推出的系列活動之首,將為所有參與者提供一個深入認識中國北方的寶貴機會,帶領來賓了解她作為絲綢之路的重要組成、中國農業資源基地,乃至工業復興中心的多樣面貌。
