The Department of History, The Chinese University of Hong Kong was founded in 1963. Thanks to our former faculty members, including Ch’ien Mu, Yu Ying-shih, Mou Jun-sun, Chuan Han-sheng, Yen Keng-wang, Wang Teh-chao, Sun Kuo-tung, and many great scholars who have served at the Department and contributed to its growth. Following the footsteps of our great maestros of history, some of our graduates acquired the distinct Academician status, some have become masters in special historical fields, or established themselves as experts in their specialized areas of research around the globe.
At the golden anniversary of the History Department, alumni were cordially invited to share the achievements, visions, research experience and interesting stories of teaching and learning of our predecessors who built, contributed to, and taught at the Department in its early days.
The articles will be posted at the website of History Department (https://www.history.cuhk.edu.hk/about/cuhk-historians/), one chapter every month from October 2021, for public access. Let us know more about our CUHK Historians and explore the interesting and fascinating episodes of their times.
The Department of History invites applications for its M.A., M.Phil., and Ph.D Programmes for the 2022-23 intake. For further information on the admission requirements and application procedures, click on the programme profiles listed below.
In the Graduate Seminar on 24 September, Prof. Noah SHUSTERMAN gave our research students valuable tips on publishing in his lecture “Some Notes and One Case Study on Publishing in English-Language History Journals.” During the class, he gave practical advice to our students on how to find suitable journals to publish their articles, such as those they were familiar with and which could contribute towards current debates. Other tips included how students should focus on specific issues (e.g. one or two sets of archival materials or historiographical/methodological questions), use footnotes to show their knowledge in the fields and prove claims that have broader interests beyond the specific topic that makes up the paper’s research. On article submissions, he discussed the usual length of waiting time, the process of peer review and its pros and cons, how to cope with negative comments from editors and reviewers as well as other issues. He then used his own experience of having an article turned down, revised and subsequently published in a journal as a case study to help students understand and navigate through the publishing process.
