Yan Liu Wins Interdisciplinary Humanities Center Award
Congratulations to our graduate student Yan Liu for receiving a Visual, Performing, and Media Arts award from the Interdisciplinary Humanities Center for his project “Hong Kong at the Crossroads”!
Here is a description of his project:
Since February 2019, the Anti-Extradition Law Amendment Bill Movement in Hong Kong had continued unabated until the first half of 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic broke out and a new national security law was passed. The Movement, therefore, has entered a new era. With Hong Kong at the crossroads, protesters have been trying to find out ways to effect political change while abiding by the law. This project intends to produce a documentary that offers the latest and most comprehensive account of Hong Kongers’ experiment with innovative forms of protest and assembly against the renewed backdrop.
