Principal Lecturer
LEUNG, Hon Chu (梁漢柱)
Ph.D. (Duke University)
honchu@hkbu.edu.hk

Leung Hon Chu has a broad range of teaching and research interests, and his research work focuses mainly on social divisions and changes in Hong Kong. He believes in a sociology that reflects on its role in society and is interested in pursuing context-sensitive research that resonates with local experiences at the same time as it is intelligible to international scholars. He has researched and published on industrial organizations and working conditions, migration and citizenship, cross-border families, community organizations, the politics of language use, and career experiences of young people in Hong Kong. His most recent research deals with (1) the social dynamics pertaining to the normalization of inadequate housing in Hong Kong and (2) the patterns of inequalities and mobilities associated with non-standard forms of work.

Course(s) Taught:

"Changing Social Composition of Subdivided Unit Production and Consumption." (Faculty Research Grant, HKBU, 2016-2018. Principal Investigator: Prof. Tang Wing Shing, Co-Investigators: Dr. Fung Kwok Kin & Dr. Leung Hon Chu).
