Lecture by Prof Hsiung Ping-chen at The University of Hong Kong
In May, our Director, Prof Hsiung Ping-chen, was invited by the Center for Humanities and Medicine, The University of Hong Kong to give a lecture at the “Child Health and Humanitarian Emergencies” Conference. The conference aimed at connecting the current practices of children protection/childhood with the historical perspectives and humanitarian concern. It also evaluated how child health and “humanitarian” intervention were elaborated; and the way both helped shape the modern definitions of “childhood”. Presenting on “The Humanitarian Implications of Chinese Childhood History”, Prof Hsiung shared her insightful views on the concepts of humanistic concern in child health in the early-modern time.
