Centre for Cultural Research and Development 文化研究及發展中心

About the Centre

The Centre for Cultural Research and Development (CCRD) is the research centre affiliated with Lingnan University’s Department of Cultural Studies.

While CCRD intends to make a strong contribution to research in inter-disciplinary cultural studies, it also aims to create an interface with the cultural and civic sectors in Hong Kong and in Asia. This will be achieved through joint research and practice-based programmes involving both Cultural Studies faculty and practitioners in the region.

Building on previous research and outreach projects at the Kwan Fong Cultural Research and Development Programme, CCRD aims to produce:

  • Supple and innovative ideas about culture and its relationship to society;
  • Conduct inter-disciplinary research that foregrounds new ideas;
  • Provide flexible platforms for partnerships between scholars and practitioners in the inter-Asia region and internationally;
  • Produce digital knowledge base organized around the thematic concerns of the Centre’s members, which, taken together, would provide a comprehensive resource for thinking about culture and society.
