Congratulations to CMCI Teaching Fellow Dr Eva Cheuk-Yin Li who has won the Outstanding Paper Award of the Hong Kong Studies Annual Conference.
Her paper, “The second life of Kowloon Walled City: Crime, media and cultural memory”, co-authored with Alistair Fraser (University of Glasgow), was selected from 300 journal articles generated from the Web of Science. Eva is proud now to be sponsored to present the paper in person in Hong Kong.
It is all about transmedia cultural memory of the Kowloon Walled City in colonial Hong Kong, which she describes as an instance of anarchic urbanism in the multidirectional global and inter-Asian cultural flow.
If you cannot make it to Hong Kong to hear Eva present her paper in person, you can read the article online in Crime Media and Culture, Vol 13, Issue 2, 2017: https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1177/1741659017703681
