Cultural Conflict in Hong Kong: Book Launch and Discussion

Why We Recommend it

This discussion, featuring Dr Jason S Polley, Dr Vinton Poon {Vwk Poon} and Professor Lian-Hee Wee, marks the launch of a new book, Cultural Conflict in Hong Kong: Angles on a Coherent Imaginary. 


Attached to Hong Kong Week – a series of events including screenings, lectures and panel talks – this talk features the authors of a new book on the city’s cultural life alongside other academics.

The book examines how in navigating Hong Kong’s colonial history alongside its ever-present Chinese identity, the city has come to manifest a conflicting socio-cultural plurality.
