The University of San Francisco Center for Asia Pacific Studies and the Asian Studies Program welcome writer and editor Louise Law for a discussion of Hong Kong literature in translation—a discussion of a literary landscape that reflects the complicated geographic, linguistic, and political history of the city itself. What exactly are we talking about when we talk about Hong Kong Literature, especially in translation? How many works have been translated into English and how many have yet to be uncovered?
The Center for Asia Pacific Studies at the University of San Francisco is pleased to announce “Gender, Embodied Aesthetics and Identities Politics in China and Hong Kong,” a three-part graduate-level workshop series on case studies in gender politics and identity issues in the Asia Pacific.
This workshop is free for graduate students at the University of San Francisco and other San Francisco Bay Area universities. Space is limited to 20 students per workshop. Priority will be given to students who elect to sign up for all three workshops.
I am pleased to announce that my new book, Building Colonial Hong Kong: Speculative Development and Segregation in the City, has just been published in Routledge’s Planning, History and Environment Series.
The Australian Centre on China in the World (CIW) at The Australian National University (ANU) aims to be one of the leading international institutions for Chinese Studies that furthers our understanding of the Chinese world — the People’s Republic of China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and the Chinese diaspora — on its own terms and through its own languages, addressing both its traditions and contemporary developments in a rapidly changing world.
Hong Kong Studies, the first bilingual academic journal on Hong Kong, is pleased to announce the publication of the latest issue, Volume 3 Number 1 (Summer 2021), on our open-access website: https://cup.cuhk.edu.hk/journals/HKS_online (under the Issues tab).
The table of contents is below. Thank you.
With best wishes,
Editors of Hong Kong Studies
