Visit to the States and Lecture at the University of Washington
A visit to the States was arranged in April and May to consolidate the connection of CUHK with renowned universities and humanities institutions there. During the trip, our Director, Prof Hsiung Ping-chen, paid a visit to the Asia Institute of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), our MOU signing partner, to substantiate collaborating projects and programs. She also met with scholars from the California Institute of Technology, Hsi Lai Temple, the University of the West and the University California, San Diego (UCSD) to establish academic network and initiate possible research collaboration in humanities subjects.
Prof Hsiung ended her trip to the States by giving a lecture titled “The Power of the Voiceless: Further Thoughts on the Studies of Chinese Childhood History” in the Chinese Department and Simpson Center for the Humanities at The University of Washington. She also presented a paper titled “Is China the ‘Area’ or the ‘Global Context’? Perspectives from Hong Kong and Taiwan” at the 70th Anniversary Conference of the University of Oregon Asian Studies Program titled “Area Studies in Global Context: The “Place” of Asia” for intellectual exchange.
