[Publications] Building Bridges: UBC Hong Kong Studies Initiative


HKSI Faculty Associate Dr. Helena Wu (Asian Studies) was invited by the European Association of Taiwan Studies to contribute a report on what the UBC Hong Kong Studies Initiative has been doing since its launch in 2017 to promote the teaching and research of Hong Kong.   


“Despite the challenges of the ‘new normal’ in the post-pandemic world, the path ventured by the HKSI, together with the growing inter-institutional and inter-continental network, has thus far resonated the possibility of empowerment in times of change and crisis. Looking forward, the HKSI will continue to invite academics and the public to reflect critically on the experiences of Hong Kong across different disciplines and in different local, translocal, diasporic, and historical contexts, by means of the methods and strategic positions offered by Hong Kong studies.”
