Work-in-Progress Workshop (July 2021)

We are pleased to announce that our inaugural Work-in-Progress Workshop will commence on 11 June 2021 and run regularly on Fridays throughout Summer 2021.

We want to express our appreciation for our members, from whom we received up to 19 submissions. Our wish is to make this Work-in-Progress Workshop a regular function throughout academic years in the future and an intellectual exchange hub for scholars in the field of Hong Kong Studies.

Each workshop lasts for around an hour, with the presenter and discussant beginning the discussion for around 15-20 minutes. The floor will then be opened up for dialogues and exchanges.
