Hong Kong Matters
Series Co-editors: Prof. Edmund Cheng (City University of Hong Kong), and Prof. Sebastian Veg (School of Advanced Studies in Social Sciences, EHESS)
In recent years, the study of Hong Kong culture, economy, politics, and society has begun to gain international attention and disciplinary recognition. More systematic, institutionalized and targeted efforts will further enhance the identity and quality of the field. Initiated jointly by the Hong Kong University Press and the Society for Hong Kong Studies, the Hong Kong Matters series aims to publish scholarly knowledge about Hong Kong across the disciplines and by scholars at various stages of career. For so long, Hong Kong Studies has been perceived as a parochial area study topic, focusing on one city with a miniscule population and territory, of little relevance to the disciplines, theories or the world at large. Many Hong Kong Studies scholars face the challenge of finding reputable and international publishers due to this misperception about the scope and nature of “Hong Kong Studies.” Against this background, this series aspires to become a major multi-disciplinary venue for quality scholarship on Hong Kong, featuring works that examine the Hong Kong experience in either comparative, or global, or theoretical perspective. We welcome proposals on any empirical topic related to Hong Kong as long as they take seriously Hong Kong’s global context and connections, or use comparative analysis, or engage theories to understand Hong Kong.
