This course aims to enrich students’ knowledge of history, society and culture of Hong Kong from early nineteenth century to the present. Students will learn about the formation, transformation and diversity of Hong Kong society made up of native clans, Tanka (boat people) who used to live on junks, immigrants from the Mainland China, Europeans, and other ethnic groups. 

The course addresses special topics in four areas, namely the components of Hong Kong society, cultural and religious activities, urban culture, and economic activities. It will explore the historical contexts contributing to the multi-cultural and multi-ethnic aspects of today’s Hong Kong – the coexistence of Chinese traditions and foreign culture. Through reading relevant documents and literature, and field work, students shall be able to observe and reflect on current phenomena and events critically. 

 

* Specific to local terms like “打小人” (beating the petty person), provided with English translations.
