Anissa Yu

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of the Sociology at Warwick. I graduated with a BSc in Biology from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and an MA in Sociology from the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

Research Interests

I am interested in political sociology, social movement studies, discourse theory and discourse analysis, and Hong Kong studies.

My project explores the impacts of differences and conflicts on the formation of collective identity, based on the case of Hong Kong’s Umbrella Movement in 2014. I focus on how people’s experiences and memories of conflicts - arising from the differences in movement values such as non-violence - shape their future interpretations of social and political events.

My doctoral research is supervised by Professor Alice Mah and Professor John Solomos.

Conference Paper
