論壇簡介 Forum Abstract

牛津大學香港學者協會(OxHKScholars)恭定於2021年4月10-11日下午4-9時(香港時間)主辦「管錐天地,溢乎四海——第一屆牛津香港論壇」。羣賢薈萃線上,月旦古今。香港聚四海之眾,誠國際都會、亞太樞紐,亦深蘊在地特色,乃敝會諸員獨一無二家鄉。由是開辦論壇,雲匯中外諸賢,聚首共商。明哲良思,締於斟酌;我城眾相,探於論議。

上世紀爾來,香港動能滿滿、活力處處。邇來更變至鉅,猶過火沸湯喧,香港復處歧衢。時代大變於今日,政經巷議於市廛。論壇乃注目「香港人」,是以不務虛言,拒置我城於僅僅概念、學術諸形上清談。「香港人」也者,且真,且活,且為獨立自存個體。細察香港歷史,昔日漁港幻變,今朝東方之珠,悉由世代香港人孜孜共營而致。論壇實一影畫文戲,呈示世所未述之「香港故事」予「香港之人」——析言之,生於斯長於斯者、僑居者、卜居者、關注我城者,悉為「香港之人」,所指乃較之「香港人」更深更廣。論壇嘉賓講者,盡皆貨真價實香港人,來自五湖四海,其專業範疇、年齒、種族,乃至時區,各異其趣。聚四海賢達於一壇,談一地古今於二日。諸賢將講論其獨特故事,實無異述說全球香港公民編年宏史。

論壇近於研討會,分專門場次、討論會、講座諸項,歸四大主題,冀示香港方方面面。每主題細分三場討論,每場由兩至三位嘉賓講者並主持專題研議。四大主題如下:香港文化與歷史、香港環境及持續發展、香港社會、創新香港。


牛津大學香港學者協會(OxHKScholars)謹定喺2021年4月10-11日下晝4-9點(香港時間)舉辦「管錐天地,溢乎四海——第一屆牛津香港論壇」。到時嘉賓線上雲集,評論古今。香港聚四海朋友,絕對稱得上係國際都會、亞太樞紐,但亦有深厚本土特色,係敝會會員獨一無二嘅家鄉。因此我哋搞呢個論壇,聚集中外猛人,一齊傾吓。思辯火花之中,睇見香港嘅不同方面。

上世紀以來,香港一直充滿動感活力。近年變化好大,翻天覆地咁,香港又一次嚟到十字路口。經歷時代巨變,大家都對未來發展充滿好奇或者疑慮。我哋論壇將重點放落「香港人」度,所以就唔會將香港單單擺響概念、學術等層面去清談。而「香港人」係指又真、又活、又獨立自存嘅個體。細心睇吓香港歷史,昔日小小漁港,今日東方之珠,全部都係由唔同世代嘅香港人一齊打拼返嚟。論壇就係一齣影畫戲,將呢個世界未曾見過嘅「香港故事」帶俾「香港嘅人」——深入啲講,凡係響香港出世長大嘅、移民嘅、暫住嘅、關注香港嘅,全部都係「香港嘅人」,所指範圍比「香港人」更深更廣。論壇嘉賓講者,全部都係貨真價實香港人,嚟自五湖四海,佢哋嘅專業範疇、年齡、種族,以至係時區,都各不相同。四海賢達匯聚論壇,兩日時間傾吓香港。各嘉賓會講論佢哋嘅獨特故事,其實等同述說全球香港公民編年大史。

論壇好似研討會咁,分專門場次、討論會、講座等等,歸入四大主題,希望可以展示香港嘅方方面面。每個主題會再細分三場討論,每場由兩至三位嘉賓講者同埋主持就專題傾談。有呢四大主題:香港文化與歷史、香港環境及持續發展、香港社會、創新香港。

Oxford University Hong Kong Scholars Association (OxHKScholars), a postgraduate association for Hong Kong students at the University of Oxford, is hosting our inaugural Oxford Hong Kong Forum, with the title “The future of Hong Kong: Reimagining glocal citizenship”, on 10-11 April 2021 9-2pm (BST) virtually to foster discussions on and about Hong Kong. The cosmopolitan metropolis we call home is blessed with strong local identities. As we embrace our unique positions in the world, OxHKScholars organises this forum with the aim to attract both Hong Kongers and foreigners to learn about different aspects of Hong Kong through meaningful conversations.

Hong Kong has been a versatile city for more than a century, full of energy and vibrancy. Amidst some of the most significant social incidents in decades, Hong Kong once again finds itself at multiple crossroads. Rather than engaging in Hong Kong solely through a conceptual or academic lens, the Forum will put the spotlight on Hong Kongers, the living, authentic, individual Hong Konger. The Forum, like a movie, will uncover untold Hong Kong stories and bring the focus back to its people – be it born-and-bred HongKongers, settled communities, transient migrants, or any international audience who holds interests in Hong Kong. Our panel speakers are candid Hong Kongers from a diverse background spanning across multiple industries, age group, ethnicities, and timezones. They will each be telling their own uniquely inspiring stories to the world, yet they will all be orating the ever-evolving chronicle of the global Hong Kong citizens.

Aiming to provide a panoramic picture of Hong Kong, the event will be held in a conference style, consisting of plenary sessions, panel discussions, and talks on four main themes. For each aspect, there will be three sessions, each of which includes two to three guest speakers and a moderator. The four themes are: Hong Kong Culture and History, Hong Kong Environment and Sustainable Development, Hong Kong Society, and Innovation in Hong Kong.
