We teach literary, film, and cultural texts beyond and across national and linguistic divides. We introduce students to critical theories, making them accessible and applicable in working environments and real-life situations. Students learn to see the world around them through diverse texts, mediums, and genres and grasp a set of analytical tools to tackle a wide range of cultural phenomena.
Teaching staff in the Core of the Department conduct research and offer instructions in the following five areas:
—Film and Visual Culture
—Literary and Cultural Theory
—Gender and Sexuality
—Hong Kong and Asia
—Postcolonial and Global Studies
Our signature Internship Programme places students in film production and distribution agencies, local publishing venues, NGOs in the cultural sector, and art curatorship and management positions as part of their Capstone experience.
