Past Activities

Film and Television Adaptations of Jin Yong's Novels (Full)
Date: 2019/8/31 (Saturday)
Time: 2:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Venue: Sha Tin Public Library (Extension Activities Room)
Description: Jin Yong's martial arts novels are the common language of Chinese communities all over the world, and their popularity is enhanced by various film and television adaptations. This talk focuses on The Smiling, Proud Wanderer and discusses how Hong Kong director Tsui Hark's film and mainland Chinese producer Yu Zheng's television drama had "perversely" rewritten the original novel: Dongfang Bubai, a ugly self-castrated man, has been reshaped to become a legendary "queer icon" in Tsui's film and a "leftover lady" in Yu's television drama.
A Critical Study of The Water Margin
Date: 2019/7/6 (Saturday)
Time: 2:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Venue: Sha Tin Public Library (Extension Activities Room)
Description: The Water Margin is a very popular and famous classical Chinese fiction, however, it is not a "good" fiction according to the high standards of literature. In this seminar, we will discuss the problems of this fiction, and the reasons why it is so popular and famous if it is not good enough.
History and Culture of Hong Kong "People"
Date: 2019/6/8 (Saturday)
Time: 2:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Venue: Kowloon Public Library (Extension Activities Room)
Description: History aims to explore the diversity of human experience. Most Hong Kong students, however, associate history education with rote learning, and they may fail to realise the values embedded in their knowledge of the past. In order to create a new history learning experience, the speaker has adopted the "4-re'' history learning approach — reconstruct, reread, reflect, and research. This talk will focus on using individual and collective memories of Hong Kong people to reconstruct the history of Hong Kong, and discuss the significance of Hong Kong culture.
