Bringing History to Life: The Battle of Hong Kong 1941=數位人文與軍事史研究:1941年香港戰役空間史研究計劃

Activity: Conference/talk/lecture/symposium/speech/workshop, etcEvent organized by HKBU


The innovative spatial history project “Hong Kong 1941” uses geographic information systems (GIS) to build an interactive web map about the Battle of Hong Kong and a database of British military installations in Hong Kong during the Second World War. Combining the up-to-date digital technology and expertise in military history, this interactive map allows historians and other beneficiaries to move beyond the textual dimension and approach historical issues from a spatial perspective. Recently, this novel project won the Best DH Data Visualization category at the Digital Humanities Awards 2021.

Dr Kwong will introduce his online interactive map and share his insights on the future possible way out of digital humanities.
