Hong Kong-Providence Summer Institute Launched

Posted by Ian on Jul 15, 2011 in news

Developed jointly by faculty of CUHK and Brown University, this course provides an opportunity for students to compare cultural heritage preservation strategies in two very different areas.

In Hong Kong, students will explore historical development of Hong Kong as exemplified by, for example, cultural heritage, the conflict and negotiation of economic and political interests in urban renewal and heritage conservation and preservation. In Providence, students will explore the history and present-day philosophy and politics of preserving sites and stories from Colonial times to the present, exploring avenues including historical archaeology, historic preservation, museum exhibition, memorials, and oral history.
