Would you like to participate in a research exchange between Utrecht University and the University of Hong Kong? You will stay in both Hong Kong and Utrecht for a week and work in small interdisciplinary groups. You and your fellow students, from both universities, will do research on rethinking the city through a contemporary lens of your own choice. Examples from previous years are sustainability, refugees, digitalization, health, civil unrest, etc.
During the research stays in Hong Kong and Utrecht you will speak to academics and artists who work with these issues and visit different sites. In the end all groups will make a short film that reflects the research.
Are you interested in an interdisciplinary and intercultural honours experience that includes a visit to the most vibrant city on the planet (=Hong Kong), then join us!
Deadline of application
