Cantonese Connection workshop

Cantonese Connection: Periodical Studies in the Age of Digitalization

Periodicals played a major role in modern Chinese history: from propagating revolutionary ideas to promoting popular culture; with digitalization the studies of this otherwise too massive and ephemeral kind of literature have become more accessible than ever. “Cantonese Connection”, therefore, is a workshop bringing together local and overseas scholars to discuss various periodicals in this context, with a specific focus on the Cantonese-speaking area, including Guangzhou, Hong Kong and Macau.

The workshop is delighted to have Prof. Poshek Fu to give a keynote speech on “Chinese Student Weekly, Asia Foundation, and Hong Kong’s Cultural Cold War”.

Date :    17th -18th May 2019 (Friday – Saturday)
