We are pleased to announce the launching of the Work-in-Progress Workshop in Hong Kong Studies. The Workshop now calls for abstracts of papers, articles, chapters and dissertations in progress of any subject in the studies of Hong Kong. Graduate students are especially encouraged to submit their works.
1. To provide graduate students and faculty a platform to present their on-going works on Hong Kong and receive feedback which help refine their research
2. To provide scholars who are interested in Hong Kong Studies a forum to learn and discuss about latest Hong Kong-related scholarship
3. To promote Hong Kong Studies through encouraging intellectual and academic exchanges among practitioners in the field, especially the graduate students who are interested in Hong Kong.
Our Workshop currently plans to meet once a month starting in the summer of 2021. All workshops are convened on Zoom. Selected authors will submit a full paper or a reasonably completed draft one week before their presentations. Their works will then be circulated among registered attendees of the workshop. When possible, relevant faculty or graduate students will be invited as discussants of a particular submitted work.
Coordinators: Samuel Chan (Executive Officer, SHKS), Mok Chit Wai John (PhD candidate in Sociology, UC Irvine)
Interested individuals should send a provisional title, an abstract (no more than 250 words), and a sentence about the project type (seminar paper, chapter, article, etc) to firstname.lastname@example.org by 31 April 2021.
Selected authors will be notified by 14 May 2021.
