Hong Kong Studies: Humanities Perspectives and Global Dialogues
Author:Yiu-Wai CHU and Shuk Man LEUNG (Series Editors)
This book series aims to provide a much-needed platform to develop Hong Kong Studies as an academic discipline by serving specifically as a vehicle for research in humanities fields—especially culture, literature, and history. Hong Kong’s unique history as a city-state and as a region, an imperial outpost, British colony, and SAR has contributed to its culture, literature, and history in a place that is not only an indigenous entity but also a fluid space where global and interdisciplinary dialogues interact. In this view, it is important to theorize Hong Kong culture in relation to a triangular articulation of Chinese nationalism, British colonialism, and globalism, which also evokes the place of the local, or lack thereof, in this triangular articulation. The series welcomes contributions from various academic fields dealing with theoretical and empirical issues relating to Hong Kong, including language, literature, history, cinema, art, theater, postcolonial studies, globalization, Cold War studies, among others. This series also serves as an important venue for research of both established and young scholars, tracking the changes that will affect Hong Kong over the coming decades from humanities perspectives.
