  • The Jesuits in Hong Kong (B*)

    CUHK Research Committee Funding (Direct Grants)

    In 1926, the Society of Jesus started its mission to Hong Kong. The Jesuit mission has a profound impact to Hong Kong through its significant social contribution. After the Jesuits established their basis at Ricci Hall, the University of Hong Kong, they were entrusted the South China Seminary in Aberdeen in 1931. In 1931, they took over the Wah Yan College, which has produced many local elite. In the 1950s, some Jesuits were involved in cooperatives, and Father John Collins promoted the Credit Union Movement. Since 1926, some 130 Irish Jesuits served in Hong Kong of whom a dozen are still serving in Hong Kong now. The Jesuits in Hong Kong since 1926 have been dedicated in education, writing, and social work; and they have made great cultural impact and significant social contribution to Hong Kong. This project will look into the contribution, social and educational in particular, of the Jesuits in Hong Kong. I will compile biographical notes on all of the significant Jesuits in Hong Kong, and then an article or a book will be written to analyze their contribution. It is hoped that this study will become an important reference for the study of the Catholic religious orders and their contribution in Hong Kong. Meanwhile, I have submitted an application on .The Contribution of the Jesuits in Hong Kong since 1926. to the Earmarked Research Grant, 2006 on October 3, 2005. (AL05553)


  • Roads and Urban Development in Hong Kong (1986-2006)

    Mega transport infrastructure projects constructed during the 1980s and 1990s enabled Hong Kong.s phenomenal development in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. They have become symbols of Hong Kong and models for other contemporary cities in the region. At the same time, our metropolis is largely characterised by a compact and high-density urban transport structure, as well as high levels of accessibility that are associated with efficient urban lifestyles and values. The highly sophisticated and efficient transport networks are synonymous with Hong Kong and are crucial to our future development. The early urban transport construction works in Hong Kong reflected the philosophy of .laissez faire. adopted by the Hong Kong government. Infrastructure and transport facilities were built to meet the immediate needs of society, which witnessed rapid population growths, and increase in commercial and industrial activity. The preparation and application of comprehensive master plans to create balanced and self-contained communities only became necessary after the implementation of the new town policy. It was in the 1980s that the earliest transport planning in its present form started to take shape. Using the 1980s as the starting point, the proposed study aims to provide a detailed account and a general review of the major transport construction works. This is to explain the rapid urbanisation process of Hong Kong since the 1980s and to evaluate the development potential of the city. (AL05512)


  • The Contribution of the Canossian Sisters in Hong Kong since 1860 (A)

    In 1860, the Italia Canossian Sisters started their mission in Hong Kong. The Canossian Sisters, also known as Daughters of Charity, have significant contribution to Hong Kong, especially through their Schools and Colleges in education, and hospital in medical service. Many of their students have become elite, serving in influential position in the government as well as playing important roles in private sectors in Hong Kong. This project will look into the contribution, particularly in education and medical service, of the Canossian Mission in Hong Kong. I will first compile a "Chronological History of the Canossian Mission in Hong Kong since 1860". I will also interview some of the eminent living Canossian Sisters, such as the Provincial Superiors, Supervisors, and Principals, and compile the "Biographical Notes of Some Significant Canossian Sisters in Hong Kong since 1860". I hope that this project will serve as an important reference for the study of the Canossian Sisters and their contribution in Hong Kong. In September 2007, I have submitted an application on "The Contribution of the Jesuits in Hong Kong since 1926" to the Earmarked Research Grant, 2008-09; and I will submit an application on "The Contribution of the Canossian Sisters in Hong Kong since 1860" this coming September to the RGC Earmarked Research Grant, 2009-10, thus, this is a pilot project.(AL07475)
