Books & City Series

The aim of the Books & City Series is to encourage students’ polymathic study, to gather knowledge, not only by expanding beyond the borders of countries, but also time and different subjects. Speakers like writers, journalist and faculty from academic departments are invited to share with students. Through this event, we hope to promote reading from the perspective of speakers from various fields as well as to promote library resources.

The Talk

Dr. Kang Kim Hyewon, Director of The Cultural Studies Centre of East Asia, was invited to share her views of Hong Kong films as a Korean scholar on 12 Mar 2015. Dr. Louisa Wei, Associate Professor of the School of Creative Media, was invited to moderate the talk. In her presentation, Dr. Kang highlighted that one of the best way to learn one’s culture is by watching local movies. Through examples of a number of Hong Kong movies, Dr. Kang explained that symbolism is one of the techniques commonly used in movies produced before 1997 to denote the attitude of Hong Kong people towards the handover of sovereignty to China. Participants expressed that through Dr. Kang’s talk, they were inspired to search for books in related topic to learn more about Hong Kong.
