[Call for Abstracts]
The 2018 Backreading Hong Kong Symposium, co-organised by the Department of English at Hong Kong Baptist University and the literary journal Cha: An Asian Literary Journal, will take place on Saturday 5 May 2018. We are particularly interested in papers that challenge existing interpretations of any aspect of Hong Kong.
Abstracts of 250 words for 15 to 20-minute presentations can be sent to Tammy Lai-Ming Ho (firstname.lastname@example.org) before 15 March 2018 for consideration. Please also send us a bionote of no more than 100 words. Scholars whose papers have been selected will be notified before 1 April 2018.
The language of the 2018 symposium will be English. We welcome both established and early-career academics to take part. The one-day symposium will also include panel discussions, book presentations, and a poetry reading.
