Gender in Science Fiction and Fantasy Writing


Date: March 16, 2018 (Friday)
Time: 5:00pm-6:30pm
Venue: Rm. 4.36, Run Run Shaw Tower, Centennial Campus, HKU

Throughout the history of science fiction and fantasy literature, women writers have pushed the boundaries of the genre to probe topics at the edges of the human imagination.  Mary Shelley, Ursula K. Le Guin, Octavia E. Butler, Margaret Atwood, and, of course J.K. Rowlings are all giants known beyond hardcore fans.  With Hao Jingfang winning the prestigious 2016 Hugo Award, Chinese women writers add their names to the growing list of pioneering science fiction authors in the Chinese speaking world.  This panel of three accomplished writers explores the world of women in science fiction by focusing on the reasons for their choice of genre, themes, characters and plot in their fiction as well as the particular challenges they face publishing science fiction literature.

YP1967 – Hong Kong Ciné Club – First screening Can To’s YP1967

YP1967 РHong Kong Cin̩ Club

First screening
Can To’s

The Department of History invites you to a series of movie screenings related to the history of Hong Kong.

The first screening, YP1967, is a documentary film of six ex-young prisoners who face harsh realities of alienation, rejection and being forgotten, but have a few words to say after half a century of silence. Five decades later, in spite of the city’s 20th handover anniversary celebrations, six ex-young prisoners speak out for the first time about their personal and unmentionable experience. This documentary film is about their love and hate towards their country, their honour and dishonour as a convicted criminal, their condonation and condemnation of the parties involved, and their truthseeking and reconciliation with the past.

Can To (the director of YP1967) is an award-winning documentary film director and producer with twenty years’ experience working in the television and media industry. Before founding CANTO WORKS, she was a senior TV producer at RTHK where she produced over 20 episodes of the acclaimed documentary series Hong Kong Connection.

Can’s production has won great international acclaims for the last two decades. In 1998, Where Women Ruled, a documentary film on Moso Tribes in Yunnan Province in China won the New York International Film Festival Finalist Award. A War Without Guns, a documentary film about AIDS orphans in China, won the Silver Award of United Nations Department of Public Information (UNDPI) in 2005. In 2010, Little Photographer, an independent documentary film on children photographers in Sichuan province in China after 512 Earthquake, won the New York International TV and Film Festival GOLD Award.

Screening in Cantonese with English subtitles.

【deTour 2017 設計講座|Design Dialogue】🎞🎥影片放映及分享 Screening and Sharing 🎞🎥

《原來我》由香港獨立電影人楊曉芙執導,訪問六位不同領域的人物—— 心理學家、發明家、創業家、環保人士、瑜伽導師、空間設計師等,分享對「創意」的看法。只要學懂放下各種思維上的包袱,原來每一個人都是創造者。受訪者之一、發明家原田実將帶領放映後討論。

What is Creativity? Are you Creative? These are the two questions the film explores through a group of students and six individuals – a psychologist, a designer, a startup entrepreneur, an activist, an inventor and a yoga teacher.

The 25-minute film launches into a whirl through numerous ideas on creativity from how our mind works, to our obsessions and fears. It then explores the possibilities of what we can do to rediscover the creativity within ourselves. Followed by an open discussion lead by Cesar Harada.

Hundreds of women and men have reported instances of sexual harassment and assault in Hollywood over the past month. Join us as we unpack and analyze how issues of gender, power, sex, race, and money merge to perpetuate institutionalized forms of oppression. We will address questions such as: what is the relationship between what we see on the screen and the “behind-the-scenes”? What challenges do women media professionals in Hollywood and Asia face? Our discussion will connect up to broader conversations about workplace culture and gender parity in other industries and institutions. Identifying possibilities for change will also be explored. The talk will start with a short presentation by Dr. Sylvia J. Martin, followed by a conversation with Dr. Denise T.S. Tang and Dr. Jason Coe, moderated by Professor Gina Marchetti, and lead into an open Q and A.

In Dialogue with Ann Hui and Margaret Ng: As Time Goes By (Ann Hui, 1997)

In Dialogue with Ann Hui and Margaret Ng: As Time Goes By (Ann Hui, 1997)
『菠蘿』•『魚蛋』│ 憂思難忘--與許鞍華、吳靄儀談《去日苦多》(許鞍華,1997)

22491831_1653498181381106_4906414598564198652_nThe MALCS Programme of the Department of Comparative Literature is proud to present an event on 17 Nov 2017 (Friday) for a film screening and panel discussion with director Ann Hui (許鞍華) and Dr Margaret Ng (吳靄儀). The panel discussion is about the hour-long documentary by Ann Hui in 1997, As Time Goes By (《去日苦多》). In the documentary, the director invites her university friends to reminisce about their college days and, in the process, engage in a discussion about education and local history in the colonial days. When 1997 marks the year of the Handover of sovereignty of Hong Kong, the film inevitably examines Hong Kong people’s sense of identity and their vision for the years ahead into the new future under China. Twenty years have passed since 1997, it is an opportune time to explore the differences between the “new future” they envisioned two decades ago and the impending reality that Hong Kong people are experiencing in the recent years.

Event: Film screening and panel discussion
Date: 17 November 2017 (Friday)
Time: 18:00-21:00 (Film Screening: 18:00 – 19:00, Panel Discussion: 19:00 – 21:00)
Venue: CPD2.58, Centennial Campus, The University of Hong Kong
Guest Speakers: Director Ann Hui and Dr. Margaret Ng
Moderator: Dr. Anita C.K. Lee
Medium of Discussion: Cantonese
