Hong Kong: a city that has always been colonized. Whether it was a British colony or a Chinese City, what does it mean to be from Hong Kong? How does one prove that one is native and how do you define authenticity?
In this course, we will look at how to transcend passports, looking at why walls are built to defend and define cultures, and the importance of protecting population and to what end? What do we lose or gain when we compromise one’s identity in service to or having to survive in the world.
