Course Aims

This course offers a comprehensive introduction to the study of cultures and heritages in Hong Kong as an interdisciplinary and cross-Area field of scholarly inquiry through which complex issues of material cultures, cultural preservations, business practices, and popular cultures can be critically analysed. By drawing on  literature in history, archaeology, anthropology, Hong Kong studies, museum studies, and related disciplines, we will engage several case studies of Hong Kong’s cultures and heritages to advance our understanding of contemporary global issues in urbanization, cultural diversities, multiculturalism, comparative development, governance, and digitalization.
