University Lecture on Civility 2017 - The 13 Things Learnt from the Adventure of a Perplexing Youth

The University Lecture on Civility (ULC) is an overwhelmingly received event which has been rolled out for seven years.  We are privileged to have Professor Lung Yingtai, a renowned Taiwanese writer, as the speaker of ULC this year.  As suggested by the title "The 13 Things Learnt from the Adventure of a Perplexing Youth", Professor Lung will share her views of the period from adolescence to adulthood with us.

To allow the CUHK community to have a more in-depth interaction with Professor Lung, a screening of the documentary "Seeing Off 1949 - Lung Yingtai's Journey" will be held a day prior to Professor Lung's lecture.  This documentary was shot while Professor Lung had been writing her literary work, The Big River Big Sea (1949).  Professor Lung will join the screening event to exchange with the audiences in person her journey to exploring 1949.

Details of all activities under ULC are as follows:
