The Shun Hing College A Salon Spring Series-“Understanding Hong Kong” aims to invite a variety of speakers to offer their insights on Hong Kong society, culture, politics, arts, architecture, etc., as well as to encourage vibrant discussions among residents and the HKU community.
The first session of Shun Hing College’s A Salon series in 2015-16 academic year invites Anderson Lee 李亮聰, an outstanding Hong Kong architect and a professor at the Department of Architecture, HKU, to present his visionary design of the 3/F Common Area at Shun Hing College.
Dr Elizabeth Sinn was born and grew up in Hong Kong but for the first 30 years of her life, knew nothing about its history. She will tell you how she came to study Hong Kong history and the pains and pleasures of being a Hong Kong historian.
Professor Leo LEE explores the colonial past of Hong Kong in order to shed light on the island’s extraordinary cultural identity. Rather than offering a historical survey, Prof. Lee presents a mosaic or “melange” of our city drawn from his research and observations. The talk will be an exposition of his book City Between Worlds: My Hong Kong, 2008.
