Humanities alumnus awarded full PhD scholarship by University of Sydney

人文學校友獲悉尼大學頒發全額博士獎學金

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.

人文及創作系哲學碩士畢業生梁仕池校友最近獲澳洲悉尼大學頒發全額獎學金,今年三月起到該校性別及文化研究系修讀哲學博士課程。

梁校友對獲得獎學金感到榮幸。在三年修業期間,他將從悉尼和香港年輕人的社會參與,研究文化公民權的轉變。他說,通過三年的民族志研究,他的論文主要探討年輕人的感受、思想和生活經驗如何推動他們主動抗爭,以了解自身在建構香港和澳洲的未來中的角色。

梁校友感謝人文及創作系師友對他的支持和鼓勵,尤其他的碩士指導教授陳錦榮教授,他亦多謝嶺南大學的梁旭明博士。
