About the Talk
Professor Ting Sun-pao Joseph will share a general overview on how The University of Hong Kong plays an important academic role and about several famous Scholars who taught at HKU and how they inspired and influenced Huang Qingyun (黃慶雲) towards her development as a pioneer of children's literature in Hong Kong.
After the fall of Guangzhou during the anti-Japanese War (1938), Huang Qingyun (黃慶雲) continued her studies at HKU. Her two semesters proved critical to her future emergence as a legend in the world of children’s literature. She published the only Chinese-language children's magazine in China and Hong Kong during World War II, and later served as Vice President of the Guangdong Writers Association. Later, she received the Best Artist Award from the Hong Kong Arts Development Council in 2009.
The exhibition talk, moderatored by Professor Lee Chack Fan will invite Ms Wong Hung-kin and Fok Yuk Ying, Ph.D. take a walk down memory lane and share memories of Huang Qingyun (黃慶雲).
