Let's tell better stories …

This special collection of books showcases the academic, creative and popular works of academic staff in the Department of Humanities and Creative Writing in the past 2 years.

From the creative works that tell personal stories to collections that make up the literary canon of our era :




謝曉虹《香港文學大系 1919-1949:小說卷一》


To the cultural stories that paint a picture of our times:

Man, Eva

Issues of Contemporary Art and Aesthetics in the Chinese Context

Cheung, Charles

Media Power in Hong Kong: Hyper-Marketized Media and Cultural Resistance












And critical narratives that offer a voice to the silenced:

Erni, John

Visuality, Emotions and Minority Culture - Feeling Ethnic

Erni, John N. and Murphy, Terry (eds.)

Between Literary and Cultural Studies: Asian Explorations

Man, Eva

Bodies in China: Philosophy, Aesthetics, Gender and Politics

Chong, Gladys

Chinese Subjectivities and the Beijing Olympics












These works demonstrate the drive to embrace the complexity of the world and offer multiple perspectives to better understand the world we live in.

To those who might wonder what the Humanities offer, we hope that this selection would give you a glimpse of the possibilities that contribute to the core of a broad Liberal Arts Education.
