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)
Venue: Lee Ping Yuen Chamber (D801), 8/F, Lee Quo Wei Academic Building (Block D),The Hang Seng University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong
Time: (Day 1) 09:30-17:45; (Day 2) 09:30-12:55
