Centre for Humanities Research, Lingnan University

Established in 2001, the Centre for Humanities Research (CHR), formerly known as the Centre for Literature and Translation, supports various research in the humanities. In recent years, the Centre’s major research focus are on areas in modern and contemporary Chinese culture, including literature, cinema, translation, music, visual arts and comics. The Centre makes great endeavours to promote academic and cultural exchange among scholars and postgraduate students from Hong Kong, Mainland China, Taiwan, Korea, Japan and overseas. Apart from organising international conferences, seminars, and research projects at regular intervals, the Centre also devotes efforts to academic publication, with Prism: Theory and Modern Chinese Literature as its flagship journal.
