Recapping the Academic Seminar “考證──從廟堂到江湖:一副嘉靖青詞對聯的故事” conducted by Prof. PUK Wing Kin on 25 October 2019
Prof. PUK Wing Kin accidentally found that a Qing Ci (青詞) recorded in Wanli Anecdote Works written by SHEN Defu of the Ming Dynasty was almost identical with a couplet hung in the lounge of a triad society displayed at the Hong Kong Police Museum as recorded in W. P. Morgan’s book Triad Societies in Hong Kong. This aroused his interest in studying the secret societies since the Ming Dynasty.  Prof. PUK explained that many senior government officials were advocates of Qing Ci during Ming’s Jiajing period. Through the works of XIAO Yishan, LUO Ergang and Dian H. MURRAY, Prof. PUK discovered four variations of couplets used by the triad societies, which showed connections between them and the government.  Prof. PUK believed that apart from the evidence found from the literature, there appeared to be a close relationship between the government and secret societies based on the similarity of rites between Hung Men, a secret society and the government.
Recapping the “CUHK History Day 2019” held on 26 October 2019

The Department held the CUHK History Day 2019 on 26 October 2019. This annual event served as a platform for the Department to share the teaching and learning of history with the secondary school sector. Participants enjoyed informative and interesting public lectures delivered by three faculty members of the Department on the theme “Conflict and Integration”. Two outstanding alumni were invited to share their career paths that began as a history graduate. In addition, two undergraduate students shared their learning experiences, which included the pleasure of undertaking internships and overseas research trips during the summer.

The event was well received and attended by around 100 participants from 17 secondary schools.






Recapping the Public Lecture “傳統律法在香港法庭:清律的婦女承產問題” conducted by Dr. SOO Yiu Chung on 26 October 2019

Dr. SOO Yiu Chung from the School of Chinese, The University of Hong Kong, was invited by the M.A. Programme in Comparative and Public History to deliver a lecture entitled “傳統律法在香港法庭:清律的婦女承產問題” on 26 October 2019.

Dr. SOO Yiu Chung introduced “Leu”(律) and “Lee”(例) associated with women’s inheritance rights in the Qing code. He then used a number of judgments to explain how the code was used by the courts to deal with disputes involving women’s inheritance rights in the New Territories. At the end of the lecture, Dr. SOO discussed with the audience interpretations of the Qing code for those cases.
