Brief notes towards a collective Hong Kong story: Place, language, history and politics

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

For the last seven years, the online journal Cha: An Asian Literary Journal has been publishing poetic works investigating Hong Kong identity and politics. As such, Cha provides a useful source for exploring the different thematic concerns which have preoccupied post-handover writing on the city. In this short essay, I focus on four of these thematic areas (place, language, colonial history and politics) and discuss how they reflect changing political, economic and social realities within Hong Kong.
