Posted in cu official shenanigans at 6:09 pm by cuenv-main

Peter Tak-Shing Yum, Dean of Engineering and Professor of Information Engineering at the Chinese University of Hong Kong in Hong Kong will discuss The Story of Hong Kong & Shenzhen tomorrow at 12 PM in 918 IAB:

With a combined population of 20 millions, the twin city of HK-SZ has many interesting stories everyday. In this seminar, I will share information and insights that are typically not found in guidebooks. I will talk about history, identity, education, economics, the government, the media, how people live, how they see each other and how they see the world. I also offer advices on experiencing the twin city through student/ faculty exchange with universities in Hong Kong. The stories will be amply illustrated by pretty pictures.

Dean Yum is also apparently a Columbia alumnus.
