Joint School Hike with Columbia, Dartmouth, Harvard, UPenn, Princeton & Stanford

Join us for our first-ever inter-collegiate sustainable hike to the Peak. This is a joint school hike with Columbia, Dartmouth, Harvard, UPenn, Princeton, Stanford, Yale where we will go from HKU to the Peak through Mt. High West. Along the way, there will be recommended optional activities to make it a little bit more fun and to raise sustainability awareness. This is a morning hike that is under 6km but with elevation gain of ~450m so it will take 2.5 to 3 hours to complete. The first hour will be mostly paved stairs so strollers are not recommended for this hike. Friends and family are welcome.

For those who like to stay for lunch, there are plenty of restaurants to choose from at the Peak.

We will be monitoring the weather conditions and inform all registered attendees to confirm the hike or cancel/postpone due to weather circumstances.


For any questions, please email samwong@aya.yale.edu.

The Politics of Identity in Taiwan and Implications for Indo-Pacific Security

Join us for the Global Affairs New Book Series and Discussion on: Identity in the Shadow of a Giant: How the Rise of China is Changing Taiwan (Bristol University Press, 2021)

This new book investigates the implications of the global ascent of China on cross-Strait relations and the identity of Taiwan as a democracy. Examining an array of factors that affect identity formation, the book considers the influence of the rapid military and economic rise of China on Taiwan’s identity. The assessment offers valuable insights into which policies have the best chance of resulting in peaceful relations and prosperity across the Taiwan Strait and builds a new theory of identity at elite and mass levels. It also possesses implications for the United States-led world order and today’s most critical great power competition in the Indo-Pacific region.

Speaker Lunch: Made in Hong Kong: Transpacific Networks and a New History of Globalization by Prof. Peter Hamilton

While it is well known that Hong Kong is a former British colony and a global financial center, few understand the longer history of this territory's business elites and their deep connections with the United States. In this book talk, Peter E. Hamilton, author of Made in Hong Kong: Transpacific Networks and a New History of Globalization and Assistant Professor at Lingnan University, will walk us through this lesser known history of Hong Kong's economic development and its critical role in the revival of Sino-US trade since the 1970s.

University Book Club - Every Man Dies Alone September 2021

Please join our book club for our next meeting on 9 September 2021 from 7:30pm to 9:00pm. It will take place online via Zoom. We will discuss ‘Every Man Dies Alone’ by Hans Fallada (translated by Michael Hoffman). Based on true events, the book presents a richly detailed portrait of life in Berlin under the Nazis and tells the sweeping saga of one working-class couple who decides to take a stand when their only son is killed at the front. With nothing but their grief and each other against the awesome power of the Reich, they launch a simple, clandestine resistance campaign that soon has an enraged Gestapo on their trail, and a world of terrified neighbors and cynical snitches ready to turn them in.
