Victoria Tin-bor Hui, Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Notre Dame, will examine Hong Kong and China in “Hong Kong’s Last Stand?,” a World Affairs Forum event at Stamford’s Ferguson Library on Sunday, Jan. 12.
Hui’s research examines the centrality of war in the formation and transformation of “China” in history. She focuses on comparative history of Asia and Europe, state formation and state-society relations, contentious politics and resistance movements, transformation of world politics, political culture, Asian and Confucian values and Chinese politics. As a native of Hong Kong, Hui also analyzes Hong Kong politics. She maintains “The Umbrella Movement and Beyond,” a blog covering the movement.
Terrence Cheng, a professor and Stamford Campus Director at UConn/Stamford, will moderate the conversation.
Following the presentation, there will be a gathering from 5-6:30 p.m. at Franklin Street Works (around the corner at 41 Franklin St.) for discussion and socializing.
