[Hong Kong Studies Symposium] The Neighbourhood—Call for Abstracts While the word “community” is more often than not suffused with a benevolent glow, connoting the virtues purportedly associated with groups of people—shared values and heritage, constancy and solidarity—“neighbourhood” is a term that has a more ambiguous, even troublesome, valency.

An Inclusive Interdisciplinary Conference
Saturday 31st August 2019 - Sunday 1st September 2019
This inclusive interdisciplinary conference seeks to investigate and explore the enduring influence and imagery of monsters and the monstrous on human culture throughout history. In particular, the project will have a dual focus with the intention of examining specific ‘monsters’ as well as assessing the role, function and consequences of persons, actions or events identified as ‘monstrous’. The history and contemporary cultural influences of monsters and monstrous metaphors will also be examined with a view to forming a selective publication to engender further collaboration and discussion.
The question of the origin of the Yoruba race still remains contentious. While diverse accounts of its origin have been appropriated by historians and scholars in cultural studies such as Revd Samuel Johnson in The History of the Yorubas (1921), Saburi Biobaku in The Pattern of Yoruba History (1958), Ade Ajayi in Yoruba Warfare in the Nineteenth Century (1964), among others, numerous discourses and counter discourses continue to unfold.
I am currently curating an anthology of personal essay/creative nonfiction by queer writers reflecting on their relationship to horror films.
