Gender/Democracy/Diversity: The History of Protests in Hong Kong
Date: Tuesday, 27 Feb 2020
Time: 5-6:30 PM
Venue: 4.36, 4/F, Run Run Shaw Tower, Centennial Campus, HKU

Can Hong Kong’s past shed light on the current political situation in the territory? Does history provide any “lessons” or “cautionary tales” for the current administration? Do past protest movements (1956, 1966-67, 1989, 2003, 2014, among others) resemble the Anti-ELAB movement of 2019? Are comparisons to other protest movements at other times and/or in other places useful for understanding Hong Kong’s current political dilemma? Do the “herstories” of women and the histories of minorities in Hong Kong speak to the current crisis in any specific ways? Can the rearview mirror of historical analysis steer Hong Kong in the right direction? This panel digs deep into the past to engage with these and other questions facing the HKSAR today.
