Introduction | 簡介

Intercultural Studies at Chinese University of Hong Kong covers topics ranging from Media and Society, Class and Identities, Gender and Queer, Science and Post-humanism, Ecological and Animal rights issues. The program incorporates a variety of perspectives and traditions between disciplines of literary theories, history, philosophy, film studies, critical theories, science and technology.  We encourage students to adopt interdisciplinary perspectives to interpret contemporary cultural phenomena and representations. Students will develop sophisticated understanding of social change and power in everyday life through studying various cultural texts, popular cultural forms, new media and digital practices. It aims to equip students with the analytical skills, critical awareness and sensitivity needed to meet the challenges of a world of increasing divides and conflicts.
