Summary: Nineteen HKU students and professors from African Studies Programme and Department of Linguistics conducted an educational field trip to Ethiopia in May to gain first-hand experience and carry out empirical investigations on various issues. Their journey of exploration included the linguistic diversity, language policy, politics, music, culture, and history of Ethiopia. With a wide range of interesting activities, the trip enabled the students to have a better understanding of Ethiopia, and gave an introduction of contemporary Africa, which is dynamic but full of challenges.

In this sharing session, student representatives will present their observations and research findings.
