Hong Kong is small but complex city. There are contradictory and puzzling urban phenomenon we encounter in their daily life we are not able to make full sense of. The multifaceted social and political processes are more exciting than what they exhibit on the surface. There are space, people and power that are hidden from ordinary observers. There are public spaces the public has no knowledge of, there are land powers that steer policy, there are interesting people from ethnic background that make our city vibrant, etc. This course will introduce analytic lens through which such hidden dimensions of the city can be examined via systematic thinking approach. Students are able to investigate such hidden dimensions via experiential leaning processes and create their own analytical perspective for their observations.
