Humanities alumnus awarded full PhD scholarship by University of Sydney


Daren Leung, an MPhil alumnus of the Department of Humanities and Creative Writing, recently received a full scholarship from the University of Sydney in Australia to pursue a Doctor of Philosophy in Arts in the Department of Gender and Cultural Studies from March 2017.

Daren was very honoured to be awarded this prestigious international scholarship. During the next three years of studies, he will explore the transformation of cultural citizenship through various forms of youth social intervention in Sydney and Hong Kong. He explained that through a three-year ethnographical work, his project aims at investigating the nuances of feelings, thoughts, and living experiences of youths that animate their active struggle to make sense of their own roles in shaping the future of Hong Kong and Australia.

Daren expressed his gratitude for the support and encouragement from his peers and teachers at the Department of Humanities and Creative Writing, in particular his MPhil supervisor Professor John Erni. He also thanked Dr Lisa Leung of Lingnan University.
