Hong Kong is famously known as a city where China meets the West.  Its unique history as a city and a region, an imperial outpost, British colony and Special Administrative Region presents a very interesting and important issue.  The richness of this city, along with the complexity of its political, socio-economic, and cultural situation, has generated many projects of Hong Kong as a case study.  Over the past decade, however, Hong Kong has been facing many changes and challenges.  It is necessary to have a collaborative project to contribute new insights and imaginaries for Hong Kong at this important juncture.  The proposed project will formulate new keywords that can evoke specificities of Hong Kong experience without relying on clichéd terms, stock phrases, and borrowed concepts.
 
Keynote 
This round we have invited Professor Rey Chow from Duke University as our keynote speaker, together with 20 overseas and local scholars, they will explore the cultural peculiarities  of Hong Kong in this two days workshop organized by the Hong Kong Studies Programme and Knowledge Taiwan Collective.
