The Centre of Urban History, Culture and Media, CUHK organized its first international conference entitled "Imagining the Future: Community Innovation and Social Resilience in Asia" on 23-25 February 2017. In the context of profound changes and uncertainties brought by globalization to physical, social, and cultural space, the conference provides an interdisciplinary forum on which scholars critically examine and imagine the future city together. Eighty scholars and practitioners from 28 different institutions in 13 different countries or territories across Asia Pacific, Europe, and the Americas attended the 2.5 day conference.

香港中文大學都市歷史、文化與傳媒研究中心於2017年2月23至25日舉辦了第一次國際會議,主題為「想象未來:亞洲社區創新與社會韌性」。全球化為物理、社會及文化空間帶來深遠的變化及不確定性,此次會議作為跨學科論壇,提供了讓學者共同批判研究及想像未來城市的平台。參加了這次兩天半會議的與會學者及從業人員來自28個不同機構,並來自13個不同的亞太、歐洲和美洲國家或地區。

[活動回顧] 周大明教授學術講座和工作坊

中山大學社會學與人類學學院、教育部長江學者特聘教授周大鳴教授於2017年3月來港訪問,舉辦學術講座和工作坊,與本地學者和學生交流。活動由香港中文大學人類學系主辦,都市歷史、文化與傳媒研究中心協辦。

 

學術講座於3月27日舉行,題為「聚落與交通:道路網路與中國城鄉社會結構變遷」。周教授以他多年的研究經驗,探討道路網絡的發展如何改變城鄉結構。周教授指出,以往聚落與聚落之間,往往有一日路程之隔,作為人們在長途旅程中的落腳點。然而,當高速公路和高速鐵路等現代道路網絡普及後,以往的中途站便因交通便捷而沒落,都市的規模也因此變得更大。周教授的例子說明,城鄉的社會科學研究不能局限於某城或某鄉本身,周邊的道路網絡對了解聚落的興衰攸關重要。

於3月29日舉行的「鳳凰村的變遷:都市人類學工作坊」,周教授首先分享了他在潮州地區鳳凰村的多年的追蹤研究。這個典型的華南農村,反映出中國如何在數十年間由「地域社會」和「熟人社會」演變成「移民社會」和「陌生人社會」,顯示出人類學研究見微知著的能力。周教授也探討了追蹤研究作為研究方法的價值,以及在同一地點相隔多年再調查所面對的困難和挑戰。最後,參與工作坊的研究生報告了自己的研究計劃,由周教授作出點評,並提供了不少田野考察時的有用建議,在座研究生都獲益良多。
