Prof. WANG Di, Distinguished Professor and Head of the Department of History, University of Macau, was invited by the Department and the Research Institute for the Humanities to present a lecture to the Department’s postgraduate students.
Prof. WANG demonstrated the modernisation process in urban change and public sphere of Chengdu from Late Ching to the Republican era through visual materials such as photographs, comics and folk art paintings. He further discussed how historical concepts and methodology, personal experiences and historical sources contributed and confined the reconstruction of the history of a city. Though personal sentiment and experience may contribute to the reconstruction of historical context, they should be employed under the restriction of historical methodology and the researcher should be aware of the limitation of the use of specific historical sources and narratives.
The Master’s Degree Graduation Ceremony will be held on 20 November 2015 (Friday). To mark this memorable day, a buffet lunch and a group photo taking session will be arranged. Staff, students, graduates and alumni of the MA Programme are cordially invited to join in the occasion.
