About the event
The massive protests that roiled Hong Kong in 2019 and their political aftermath comprised both complex political and social phenomena and intense personal narratives. Rowena He, an associate professor of history at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, will reflect on the events of 2019-2022 using narrative accounts drawn from her interactions with Hong Kong and mainland Chinese students in the territory. Connecting the personal with the social, the political, and the historical, she will unpack the nuances, contradictions, and challenges posed by an unprecedented social movement and its ongoing impacts.
