The Chamber of Young Snow Distinguished Scholar Programme gathers leading international experts on art history, curatorial studies, visual studies, and cultural heritage management, to share their critical views with Lingnan faculty, students and other members of the general public through distinguished lectures, professional workshops and other educational activities.


About the Series
In 2021 the Chamber of Young Snow Distinguished Scholars Webinar Series invites three international speakers to reflect on the theme of cross-geographic practices from the pre-modern era to today. With this theme we seek to encourage thinking about the history of migration and shifting notions of borders and diversity during a time when global connections and disconnections became more political than ever. What are the inspirations and conflicts that come with transcultural encounters in the colonial and postcolonial eras? How are those stories narrated and visualized in art history and museum practices of the 21st century? How do perspectives and historical evidences gathered from different sites help rewrite ‘global’ histories?
