Capstone Fair 2023
27 Nov 2023 (Mon)
Kin Sun Square (Skylight), Lingnan University
The final-year students in Bachelor of Arts in Cultural Studies (BACS) marked a great achievement by presenting and sharing their capstone projects with the public in an innovative and interactive way in the Capstone Fair on 27 November 2023 (Mon)!
Through their project presentations, students showcased their ability to integrate the academic knowledge and practical skills they have acquired from their undergraduate studies. They went beyond the classroom learning, demonstrating their capacity to think critically and make meaningful contributions to society. Their research projects cover a broad range of fascinating topics, including Jazz-rap, pet care, boy’s love, dating apps, salted fish production, cosplay, fandom, family remittance, and labour culture.
As a token of appreciation for students’ outstanding efforts and achievements, 3 awards were presented. The Best Capstone Presentation, the 1st Runner-up Capstone Presentation and the 2nd Runner-up Capstone Presentation were issued to three student groups whose projects received the highest number of votes through a secret ballot.
