The Department of Sociology, Hong Kong Shue Yan University is pleased to be given the opportunity to host the 17th Annual Conference of the Hong Kong Sociological Association.  

The theme of the conference – Sociological Imagination in a Pluralist World – is an invitation to explore the forces – politics, economics, social movements, policies and institutions – that drive the recognition and affirmation of diversity within society, and the problems that derive from the coexistence of different interests, belief systems, and lifestyles.

The conference hosts 17 panels with a total of 63 presenters from Hong Kong, the Mainland, and abroad. We are particularly proud that we have two keynote speakers for this year’s conference. Prof. Wong Siu-lun will be the keynote speaker for the morning session and Prof. Chua Bing Huat the keynote speaker in the afternoon.


The Conference schedule can be accessed here.
