Workshop:
Voices of Hong Kong - The New Sensitive

The raging tempest that is ravaging Hong Kong has woken the long dormant multitude who now compete to articulate their burgeoning, multiple consciousness-es, their conflicting conceptions of home and place, standing up to a world that had long denied them a voice. The disenfranchised multitude are being increasingly and systematically disempowered from any visions of the city’s future. If inheritance is crucial to the cultural hybridity and vibrancy of a city, at this present point of history, there is nothing more urgent than amplifying the cacophony/symphony of voices of Hong Kong to the world.

With the aim to gather undergraduate and postgraduate students and emerging and seasoned scholars alike, to exchange thoughts on controversial issues and sensitive keywords, a one-day bilingual workshop entitled VOICES OF HONG KONG - THE NEW SENSITIVE will be held with the following details:

September 21 (Sat)
10am - 5pm
CRT 4.36, Run Run Shaw Tower, Centennial Campus HKU

香港的聲音 – 新敏感詞
種種風雨正引領香港,踴躍發聲,表達對「家」與「地域」的多樣概念,對抗長期剝奪其聲音的世界。沈默的群眾被排斥於這城市的未來想像以外。倘若傳承對於一個城市的文化融雜和活力如斯重要,正正在這個時刻,香港的文化反思,紛亂與和弦結集的聲音,更須珍而重之。

匯聚不同年齡層的本科生,研究生與學者,交流彼此對具爭議性的議題和敏感關鍵詞的想法,為期一天的「香港的聲音–新敏感詞」工作坊將於香港大學舉行。詳情如下:

九月二十一日 (星期六)
上午十時至下午五時
香港大學百周年校園逸夫教學樓CRT-4.36

Organized by the Hong Kong Studies Programme, HKU
