Hong Kong Society

Prerequisite:

Nil

The course will help students develop a sociological understanding of Hong Kong society, as meaningful activities involving differently situated actors and embedded in processes of different scales. Social, political and cultural processes will be examined to show how they transform possibilities of life and give rise to issues of public concerns in Hong Kong. The aim is not to overwhelm students with facts and figures about every aspect of Hong Kong, but to help students understand Hong Kong society in sociologically informed perspectives.
