Editor’s Third Pick of the Conferences for 2019 ‘All Roads Lead to Hong Kong’: People, City, Empires, Hong Kong History Project Conference CFP


  • Univeristy of Hongkong (map)

Hong Kong has been described as its own cultural-historical place at the edge of the Chinese and British empires, and as an ‘in-between place’. But can we also consider Hong Kong beyond the edge of these two empires and as more than an in-between place? Our aim is to encourage work that will consider the city’s history within a global framework that includes, but is not restricted to, networks of people, goods, communications, ideas and culture.  Proposals are invited for individual papers of 20 minutes, or for panels including three such papers.

Abstracts are due 5 January 2019.
