[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. Neighbourhoods, depending on one’s point of view, can be good or bad, welcoming or hostile, safe or dangerous, dull or vibrant.
HONG KONG STUDIES—Issue 4 (Fall 2019) Call for Papers—General Research Articles The first bilingual and interdisciplinary academic journal on Hong Kong, Hong Kong Studies (Chinese University Press), is now accepting general research articles on Hong Kong for Issue 4 (scheduled for publication in Fall 2019). We welcome papers from multiple fields in the humanities and the social sciences, including but not limited to literature, linguistics, cultural studies, philosophy, sociology, politics, history, education, and gender studies. We also encourage intersectional and cross-disciplinary dialogues on Hong Kong affairs. Research articles in English should be no longer than 6,000 words (including footnotes but excluding references).
This special issue of The Global South asks how the rise and persistent relevance of radio has shaped and been shaped by the cultures of the Global South over the past century and more. What art forms, social practices, political movements, and linguistic effects emerged through the radio speakers of the Global South? How have creators and consumers harnessed this medium and its expressive possibilities? What roles has radio played in the broader cultural histories of the Global South? Here, the “Global South” is used as a flexible descriptor that names not only nations and lands of the southern hemisphere, but other regions radically affected by the pressures of imperialism, globalization, and unequal development.

Lehigh University is hosting its second annual one-day symposium in advance of the United Nations’ Commission on the Status of Women (CSW). This year’s priority theme is “Social protection systems, access to public services and sustainable infrastructure for gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls”. Expanding on this theme, we seek to explore how the work of regional community organizations, educational institutions, and individual faculty, staff, and students (undergraduate and graduate) engage with the theme of “Gender and Empowerment, Access, and Infrastructure” in their work, research, advocacy, and lives.
