The HKU Museum Society is pleased to present “Tradition & Modernity: A Tour of Fujian – Taiwan” with Professor David Lung (龍炳頤教授). Professor Lung led a Museum tour to Chaozhou two years ago. He has retired from teaching and is currently holding honorary professorships in Department of Architecture and in Institute of Humanities and Social Sciences at HKU. His research interest is in the areas of vernacular architecture, heritage conservation and history of Christian thought, liturgy and ecclesiastical architecture.
In this trip, Professor Lung will bring forward the theme of cultural diversity of Fujian Province with visits to places where Christianity, Manichaeism, Islamism, Buddhism, Taoism once flourished. We will experience the communal way of living of the Hakka people in the traditional mud buildings. The trip will also explore the Kinmen Island, once a restricted military combat zone for over 5 decades.
