The first networking event organised by the Research Institute for the Humanities (RIH) was held successfully on Thursday, 27 April 2023. Around 60 faculty members and research students from the Faculty of Arts joined the tea gathering at the Arts & Humanities Hub at the G/F of Fung King Hey Building.

Prof. Jeremy Yellen, the Acting Director of RIH and Prof. Stuart McManus, the Acting Director of Digital Humanities Initiatives briefed the guests on the work of RIH and introduced the new initiatives in the beginning of the gathering. Then, a warm welcome speech was given by Dean of Arts, Professor Max Xiaobing Tang. In his speech, Dean Tang encouraged the faculty members and research students to unleash their research creativities and potentials by seizing the RIH Interdisciplinary Reading Groups sponsorship for the RPg students and the Interdisciplinary Initiatives for the faculty members.

It was a joyful gathering with good foods, good drinks, refreshing ideas and inspiring discussions.
