2023 Interdisciplinary Initiative Projects

The RIH is delighted to announce that three proposals have been selected as the 2023 Interdisciplinary Initiative Projects. The projects are Transnational Urban Humanities, Archaeological Science in Hong Kong and South Asia From Asia Initiative 

The RIH Interdisciplinary Initiative has the following aims: to encourage interdisciplinary research crossing the boundaries of individual academic units, to promote collaboration among faculty members in the Faculty of Arts with shared intellectual interests, and to develop interdisciplinary research in new areas with the support of a knowledgeable, diverse group of colleagues. The three chosen projects have shown a clear emphasis on integrating interdisciplinary research and innovation into a dynamic and impactful continuum.

This initiative provides an interdisciplinary platform for humanities scholars working in different fields, locations, and periods to examine the interconnected cultures and aesthetics of understudied cities in Asia and elsewhere. It also aims to cultivate networks between urban humanities scholars at CUHK with other universities in Hong Kong and overseas.

Archaeological Science in Hong Kong

This initiative facilitates dialogue and knowledge exchange on a wide range of topics related to the human past. Researchers can share the latest developments in their respective fields through themed technical workshops and focus group meetings. Ultimately, this initiative will help advance the study of the human past by strengthening the collaborative network to address research interests more effectively.

South Asia From Asia Initiative

The aim of this initiative will be in three main areas: research, pedagogy, and public interaction. Research: it will develop research collaboration between interdisciplinary members, and give a venue to present research. Pedagogy: there will be mentoring of PG and UG students interested in South Asia, as well as course development. Public interaction: it will hold public talks and events highlighting South Asian connections in Hong Kong, Mainland China, and East Asia.

Each project will receive around HK$150,000 to cover the cost of activities. Congratulations to all and all the best for the journey ahead!
