Book Launch | Chinese Music in Print: From the Great Sage to the Lady Literata

Grounded in a desire to bring back to life rare items from the University of Hong Kong’s Fung Ping Shan Library that are entwined within the world of music, Chinese Music in Print views the library as a repository not simply of information but of artifacts that can be used for generating new scholarly narratives. In this book launch, contributors to the volume will highlight several of the most valuable titles discussed in the publication. A live performance of musical works contained within these titles will also be featured.

Speakers: Prof. Yang Yuanzheng, Dr. Fong Sing Ha, Dr. Colin Huehns
Moderator: Prof. Chan Hing-yan

Date: 17 January 2023 (Tuesday)
Time: 5:30pm – 6:30pm

Registration Required:

To accompany the publication, an exhibition of related material from the Fung Ping Shan Library and Western Rare Book Collection will be on display in the Exhibition Area, 2/F, HKU Main Library from 16 January to 10 February 2023.
