Cultural Sociology and the Imagined Community

Intercommon Education Institute

Course Instructor

This course delves into the sociocultural dynamics of Hong Kong identity, redefined amid political upheavals since 2019. It examines the complex constructs of "us" through emotional, traumatic, and communal lenses, challenging established perceptions and reflexive thoughts within the society. Over eight sessions, key sociological concepts are explored, including emotions, trauma, identity, boundaries, memory, time, and diaspora, to critically reflect on what defines "Hong Kong people" and their "imagined community."
