The enthusiastic audience raised plenty of questions about
the mass media, covering ethics, censorship, comparison with
the mainland media, and career advice, making the lecture
comprehensive and interesting.
Among them was
Douglas Whitehead, a year one MPhil student in Humanities:
"I've always been interested in the mass media of different
countries. This is a golden opportunity to learn from an expert,"
Prof Alvin So, Associate Dean of Humanities
and Social Science and program instructor for the course,
said: "This course provides a forum for students to listen
to distinguished speakers on a number of prominent issues.
It will definitely broaden students' outlooks and enhance
their critical thinking as regards the challenging issues
facing Hong Kong."
In the other lectures, experts interact with students on
issues including the politics of polling, the population issues
facing Hong Kong and the local cultural industry.
|Face To Face
With Political Stars
Martin Lee and "Long Hair" Leung Kwok-hung
came to UST in February, meeting and sharing their
political views with UST students. They also discussed
their expectations for Hong Kong's political development.
Organized by UST Students' Union, the talks helped
broaden student understanding of society and develop
their sense of social awareness.
