Varsity 25th Anniversary Discussion: Telling Hong Kong Stories

27 April 2018


WMY402, Wu Ho Man Yuen Building, CUHK



Event Details:

This year marks the 25th anniversary of Varsity, which was launched as the English language practicum magazine of CUHK’s School of Journalism and Communication in 1993. Varsity began as a publication aimed at Hong Kong’s tertiary education students but has since evolved to embrace a wider audience.

We aim to provide a platform for the telling of stories – in print and online - from and about Hong Kong, in English for people both here and further afield. We know we are not alone in this endeavour, and that although the mainstream English language media landscape seems diminished compared to 1993, the emergence of online media has led to new opportunities.

It’s against this backdrop that we’re organising a 25th anniversary panel discussion on the topic of “Telling Hong Kong Stories”. Please join us! The details are as follows:
