Scholars share insights at the HKBU forum on Sun Yat-sen studies
21 Nov 2018
HKBU’s Department of History, the University Library and Sun Yat-sen Education and Charity Foundation jointly organised an international forum on Sun Yat-sen studies on 12 November.
The forum consisted of six panels and featured a diverse range of talks delivered by Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and American scholars on the studies of Mr Sun Yat-sen. At the forum, participants discussed their research from a global perspective, including topics such as the relationship of Sun Yat-sen and Asia, his political stance, and how to shape the image of Sun Yat-sen in different countries.
The forum, which aims to encourage fruitful discussions in the field, was a joint event which commemorates the 40th anniversary of the Department of History and the 20th anniversary of Sun Yat-sen Education and Charity Foundation.
