The Hong Kong – Shenzhen Connection: Lessons, Challenges, and Outlook

March 13, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

180307 Mary O Donnell-01-01-01

Shun Hing Salon enters the Year of the Dog with a talk given by Mary Ann O’Donnell, titled The Hong Kong – Shenzhen Connection: Lessons, Challenges, and Outlook.

Keywords such as China’s first Special Economic Zone or a booming metropolis are common to denote the place. However, Hong Kong cannot be left out of the equation, which grows in tandem with Shenzhen. This talk asks how we can learn from the connection between the two places.

Mary Ann O’Donnell is an artist-ethnographer and an expert on Shenzhen. She is co-editor of Learning from Shenzhen: China’s Post Mao Experiment from Special Zone to Model City (UChicago Press, 2017) and blogs on “Shenzhen Noted.
