Venue: Lingnan University, Hong Kong
Theme: Creativity and Social Movements
Lingnan University Kwan Fong Cultural Research & Development Programme, Master of Cultural Studies, Department of Cultural Studies
Targeting post-graduate students / young faculties, the overall theme will cover the diverse sociohistorical contexts in which thinking about creativity in relation to social movements (“aesthetics and politics” in the first half of the twentieth century) has mattered to both theory and practice. We will also consider the various forms of contemporary activism, and their conjunctures with cultural and aesthetic transformations of various kinds in inter-Asia. The programme will include 10 full-day themed coursework with a combination of lecture presentations and more informal as well as small group discussions, plus field-trips or visits on 2 or 3 days during the weekends.
Directors: Prof Stephen Chan, Prof Meaghan Morris
