Between Words and Images: Linking Cultural Production in Hong Kong and Canada -- symposium

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the establishment of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, YCAR organized a mini-symposium on Hong Kong.

The focus of the September 24 event was Cultural Production -- mass media studies, film studies, education, space design and consumption as well as cultural critiques.

The event was a great success and YCAR, along with event organizer Wendy Wong, would like to thank everyone who attended and contributed to the symposium.

A special thank you to Bassanio So, Diana Lary, all of the symposium presenters as well as the York China Students' Association for their invaluable assistance.
