AAS Receptions and Panels
As an affiliate of the Association for Asian Studies, SHKS will sponsor Hong Kong-focused panels and organize receptions during its annual meetings in North America and Asia. Members are welcomed to form panels and send their proposed panels to the SHKS for sponsorship.
SHKS will collaborate with other local and overseas institutions sharing our mission of promoting Hong Kong Studies. These collaborations will take the form of joint organization of conferences, workshops and lecture series. We have most recently co-organised a symposium on digital research into media and politics with the Journalism and Media Studies Centre of the University of Hong Kong in August 2018.
Work-in-Progress Workshops provide a supportive and stimulating platform for SHKS members to obtain feedback on their work from fellow academics regardless of disciplines and institutional affiliations. Each workshop will feature a small number of works-in-progress, which will be circulated before the meeting to a limited number of pre-registered participants. You are very welcomed to submit works-in-progress of all types, including short think pieces, book chapters and articles.
Thematic and Methodological Workshops
SHKS will invite senior scholars from overseas and local universities to offer short-term intensive workshops targeting junior faculties and graduate students. These workshops will be organized around a substantive field or a research methodology and their application to Hong Kong Studies. Please stay tuned for regular announcements of our thematic and methodological workshops.
Public Lecture Series
SHKS will organize public lectures gearing toward a lay audience and given by an individual or a panel of scholars on all fields of Hong Kong studies. Topics will range from history, literature, films, media, pop culture, sports to economics, law, criminal justice, social policies and politics. Public engagement between the Hong Kong public and the academic community is mutually beneficial as it keeps the public informed and academics grounded. SHKS can take advantage of its large overseas membership base to include international scholars visiting Hong Kong as speakers in this series.
