Visiting Professor of the Centre in 2010
Sponsored by the Genlin World Heritage Foundation, the Centre for cultural Heritage Studies invited Prof. Peter Howard from Bournemouth University, UK to visit the Centre from 23rd Feb. to 4th March 2010. During his visit, Prof. Howard had an academic discussion with some teachers and postgraduate students of the department of Anthropology on 25th Feb., delivered a public lecture titled “The Rise of Heritage” at Esther Lee Building, CUHK on 26th Feb., and led a one-day workshop on Hong Kong’s Urban Heritage Preservation for undergraduate and postgraduate students of the Department of Anthropology on 28th Feb.
More than one hundred persons, including Prof. Dean Hsiung of the Faculty of Arts, teachers, undergraduate and postgraduate students of various departments of CUHK, government officer, and professionals of private companies and foundations working on heritage, as well as public members interested in the topic, attended the public lecture. They all enjoyed and were inspired by Prof. Howard’s talk.
With continuous financial support from the Genlin World Heritage Foundation, it is hoped that more visiting scholarship will be arranged in the future.
