HKBU English

We are a group of teaching staff and students at Hong Kong Baptist University (Department of English Language and Literature) interested in topics related to literature, language and translation. We meet four to eight times a semester to listen to papers given by special guests and to discuss the broad issues that their presentations raise. Please write to Winnie Chor ( or Tammy Lai-Ming Ho ( if you would like to learn more about our seminars or just to get in touch.

Our meetings take place (unless noted otherwise) on Mondays between 4:30 and 6:00pm. Venue: OEM1008, 10/F, OEN Hall Building, Ho Sin Hang Campus (Old Campus).

Presenters will describe some research that they have been working on for some time, have just started working on, or are thinking about working on in the future. Attendees will ask questions and try to brainstorm ideas in an attempt to help the presenter fine tune his/her methodology, research questions, or anything else that attendees may think of.
