Challenges in the Study of Hong Kong History: 2nd Early Career & Postgraduate Workshop

Dr Loretta Lou recently attended this event at the University of Bristol. Here's her account of the day:

On Friday I presented my recently published article ‘In the Absence of a Peasantry, What, Then, Is a Hong Kong Farmer?’ at the HKHP Workshop. I used this opportunity the publicize my new publication among a group of Hong Kong specialists. The talk was well received and I had fruitful exchanges with my fellow speakers about non-elites’ contributions to Hong Kong’s social and economic development; Hong Kong’s development during the post-war years; transnational Hong Kong; and the place of Hong Kong in British Empire. We’ve exchanged contacts for future collaborations. During the roundtable discussion, I also had a chance to learn from former BBC Hong Kong-based journalist Vaudine England about writing academic books for general audiences.
