SHKS regular organizes seminars to engage the public and encourage exchange between the academic community and the larger society.
Book Talk Series: New Directions in Hong Kong Studies
SHKS has embarked on a fruitful series of book talk on recent titles that have been published featuring the new works on Hong Kong since October 2022. The study of Hong Kong history, culture, economy, politics and society has begun to gain international attention and disciplinary recognition. This series will be the ideal venue to foster such an international and interdisciplinary knowledge community. We aim to promote accessible, intelligent, concise and scholarly books addressing themes of contemporary or historical interest to a worldwide readership.
Global Hong Kong: Lessons from Elsewhere Series
SHKS and Global China Center of HKUST co-organized the “Global Hong Kong: Lessons from Elsewhere Speaker Series.” This Series invited speakers around the world, who share similar political and social challenges in their respective countries, to give talks on their experiences and teach lessons to Hong Kong people. The Series had a total of 8 public lectures, given by speakers from Northern Ireland, South Korea, South Africa, Singapore, Russia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Myanmar and attended by hundreds online.
