Symposium by Prof Robert Gurval, Prof Poo Mu-chou and Prof Lee Ou-fan
Apart from the lecture on “Marriage, Family and Sexuality in the Age of Augustus”, Prof Robert Gurval, a scholar of antiquity from the University of California UCLA, was invited to lead a symposium titled “Famous Women in History” at the University in late February. The symposium also featured two renowned professors in CUHK, Prof Poo Mu-Chou and Prof Lee Ou-fan. Together with Prof Gurval, the three embarked an exciting and comparative intellectual discussion on the famous women in the antiquity, encompassing Hatshepsut from Egypt, Agrippina from Rome and Cixi from China, exerting new vigor in the traditional historical studies which had been dominated by men in power and mono-perspective narration.
