香港在粤語文化中地位特殊 ─ 百分之九十的群眾都會說粤語,這個特質令香港發展成擁有獨特文化的中國城市 ─ 一個本地、傳統和其他族裔文化匯聚的中心。這文化象徵著中西、新舊、貧富之間的關係,這種關係超越了一般二元對立的局面,並吸引了全球各界的注意。香港文化的成功,在當地的流行音樂、戲劇、飲食、文學和身份認同上都不難看出。

 

本文集探討粤語文化近十年來的轉變,這段期間發生的社會歷史等事件,包括中國的冒起和其軟實力的影響如何為粤語文化的未來帶來了新挑戰,討論粤語文化對香港的重要性,並擴闊香港固有的文化框架及研究範疇。

 

Hong Kong occupies a unique place in Cantonese culture — with 90% of its population speaking the language, it has become home to a distinctive Chinese culture — a hub for the hybridised cultures of local, traditional and diasporic communities. This culture is characterised by its negotiation between East and West; new and old; high and low. It has crafted a unique and hybrid particularity that goes beyond the binaries, and it has also captured the imagination and recognition of a global audience; its success reflected in its popular music, theatre, food, literature and identity. 

 

This anthology explores how Cantonese culture has been refigured over the past decade, at a time when a series of events related to the rise of China and its soft power call for a renewed understanding of the future of Cantonese culture in Hong Kong. This book endeavours to open up the boundaries of Hong Kong’s culture and its studies by investigating the importance of Cantonese culture in Hong Kong.
