The 2014 Umbrella Movement in Hong Kong: Some Reflections

King's College London, S-3.20, Strand Campus
11/02/2016 (18:00-20:00)

The Umbrella Movement may be over. Many questions remain unanswered. Among them, what does its failure auger for Hong Kong, Taiwan, and China? Discussing this question will be Professor John Wong, Emeritus Professor of Modern History, University of Sydney, Australia.


Professor Wong is a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences in Australia, a Fellow of the Australian Academy of the Humanities, as well as a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society in the UK. His life-long research on British imperialism is showcased in his Deadly Dreams: Opium, Imperialism, and the 'Arrow' War (1856-1860) in China (Cambridge hardback 1998, Paperback 2003 and 2008). An updated and greatly expanded Chinese version will be published in 2015.
