Hong Kong on the Brink

The situation in Hong Kong changes by the day and impacts the world. This three-module, 18-hour NCTA course explores the evolution and current events related to the Hong Kong democracy movement, from the origins of the 2014 Umbrella movement to today. With China scholar Jeffrey Wasserstrom’s February 2020 book Vigil: Hong Kong on the Brink as a foundation, the class will also consider essays by China specialists, investigative news reports, and podcasts. The course includes a live discussion with the author.
