課程簡介

This course explores Hong Kong between the mid-nineteenth and early twenty-first century from global historical perspectives. To contextualize modern Hong Kong within the history of the world, the course will first introduce some of the key concepts, frameworks, and issues in the field of global history, and then examine the ways in which Hong Kong’s politics, economy, society, and culture have been connected to other East Asian regions, Southeast Asia, Euro-America, and the remaining parts of the world for the past 180 years. Roughly chronologically organized, the lectures revolve around the theme that Hong Kong history is important, if not essential, for us to understand and rethink various aspects of global developments within different temporal-spatial frameworks such as merchant capitalism, transpacific Chinese passages, the Cold War, and postwar Sino-US relations. The course is multidisciplinary; students will read readings on Hong Kong and global history in the fields of history, international relations, politics, economics, anthropology, literature, and cultural studies.
