This will require only about 5 minutes of yourtime, but will provide an invaluable resource/database for our use in lobbying UGC and advocatingthe Humanities over the short to medium term.

Please kindly complete the following form by 30 June. Thank you for helping us to fill in the KTData Collection Form.

With public funding for universities -- not least in the humanities -- shrinking in the many parts of the developed world, it is timely to consider what forms of public advocacy peak bodies such as the Hong Kong Academy of the Humanities should be engaging in. This symposium will consider the challenges we face in making effective interventions in public discourse on behalf of the humanities, along with some approaches and lines of thinking that seem promising.
