Call for Submissions – Work-in-Progress Workshop 2024

We are thrilled to announce the forthcoming launch of the 2024 Work-in-Progress Workshop in Hong Kong Studies. The Workshop is now officially accepting abstracts for papers, articles, chapters, and dissertations that are currently in progress, covering any subject within the realm of Hong Kong studies. We particularly welcome submissions from graduate students, who are strongly encouraged to share their ongoing work.

Workshop Objectives

  1. Provide graduate students and faculty with a platform to present their ongoing works on Hong Kong, facilitating valuable feedback to refine their research.
  2. Create a forum for scholars interested in Hong Kong Studies to learn about and discuss the latest scholarship related to Hong Kong.
  3. Promote intellectual and academic exchanges among practitioners in the field, with a special emphasis on encouraging graduate students interested in Hong Kong to actively engage in the study and exploration of the subject.


The workshops will be conducted on the Zoom platform from February to April 2024. Upon selection, authors are required to submit a full paper or a reasonably completed draft at least one week prior to their scheduled presentations. These works will be shared among the registered attendees of the workshop, allowing for meaningful engagement and discussion. Whenever feasible, we will extend invitations to relevant faculty members or graduate students to serve as discussants for specific submitted works, further enriching the scholarly discourse.
