HKBU student wins Sir Edward Youde Memorial Fellowship

浸大生獲頒「尤德爵士紀念基金研究生獎學金」

Yvette Wong (MPhil in Humanities and Creative Writing, Year 2), nominated by the University, will receive a HK$50,000 scholarship under the Sir Edward Youde Memorial Fellowships 2015-16 for postgraduate students. This year, only four fellowships were made available for postgraduate students from the eight universities to compete for. 
 
Yvette’s MPhil thesis focuses on “wenyi qingnian” (art enthusiasts) in Hong Kong. She said, there tends to be a lot of discussion on ethnicity or education, while the subject of art enthusiasts has been relatively overlooked in literature. Her thesis is based on interviews with four art enthusiasts from the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s generations. Through the interviews, Yvette learnt that the art enthusiasts have made significant contributions to the development of creative culture in Hong Kong. Upon completion of her studies in HKBU, Yvette plans to pursue PhD studies in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. In addition, she will translate the interviews with the art enthusiasts into Chinese and publish a book to enable more people to know about this topic.
 

王樂儀同學(人文及創作系哲學碩士二年級)獲浸大提名並獲頒「2015-16年度尤德爵士紀念基金研究生獎學金」,可獲得港幣50,000元獎學金。今年供八所大專院校申請的研究生獎學金名額只有四個,競爭十分激烈。
 
王同學的碩士論文探討「香港文藝青年」,她表示,以往的文獻多探討倫理、教育等,並笑言「文藝青年」是一個較偏門的議題。她的論文以訪問四位來自60、70、80和90年代的文藝青年為骨幹,她從訪問認識到這些文藝青年對本港的創意文化作出很大的貢獻。她期望碩士畢業後往荷蘭阿姆斯特丹修讀博士課程,並希望將她的訪問內容翻譯成中文,出版書籍,令更多人認識這個議題。
