Prof. Tu Weiming Speaks on the Cultural Identity in Chinese Community

The first lecture of the Shun Hing Lecture Series in Arts and Humanities was held on 7 March on CUHK campus. Prof. Tu Weiming, director of the Institute for Advanced Humanistic Studies at Peking University and Research Professor at Harvard University, was invited to share on the topic ‘A Truly Meaningful "We" in Cultural China: How Is It Possible?’ The lecture attracted an audience of over 450, including CUHK staff and students, members of education and public sectors.

Professor Tu shared his views on the sense of cultural identity in the global Chinese Community. The Chinese in mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia and in the global community have endeavored to embrace and to advocate their precious culture, while building a strong sense of cultural identity. He hoped such a cultural identity could be established in a humanistic spirit of freedom, diversity, inclusiveness and self-reflection, and most important, incorporating a vision of communal, critical, rational and benevolent self-consciousness.
