Graduate/Research Postgraduate Student Conference, University of Hong Kong, May 24-25, 2013
This conference will investigate and challenge the notion of “transformation” in Chinese architecture and urbanism over the course of the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Dramatic physical changes in the Chinese city over the past 160 years have accompanied, reflected, and occasionally prompted significant political, social and cultural vicissitudes in China over the same period of time. At the same time, the idea of “transformation” as a straightforward and complete shift from one state to another tends to obscure and deny the complex, competing, and often incomplete nature of change itself.
