Hong Kong History Project Post-Graduate Workshop
University of Bristol, January 2019
‘Hong Kong and Beyond: Mapping the City’s Networks’
The Hong Kong History Project at the University of Bristol is pleased to announce its third Postgraduate Workshop, which will take place on January 14-15, 2019, and which provides an opportunity to network and the share ideas. We welcome proposals for participation from postgraduate students and early career scholars working on Hong Kong history and related disciplines in the UK and overseas. This year we are looking to explore the transnational contexts of Hong Kong’s history. We seek proposals for 20 minute presentations on current research that can address this broad theme from any angle, and which relate to the wider political, social, cultural, and commercial networks that have helped shape Hong Kong’s history. Presentations will be organized into small panels, followed by question and answer sessions.
Candidates are invited to submit a 200-word statement briefly outlining their area of research and motivation for attending the workshop, along with their Curriculum Vitae. Please submit all applications to Jason Chu (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Thomas Larkin (email@example.com) by November 26, 2018. Accepted participants will be notified by December 3, 2018. Two nights’ accommodation in Bristol and some meals will be provided. Although priority will be given to history postgraduate students and recently completed PhDs, applications from other disciplines will be considered provided an appreciation of history is shown.
