Venturing to the Unknown:
Men's Studies in Greater China


Appreciation is given to the Research Committee of Hong Kong Baptist University and the Hong Kong Baptist University Library, which supported this project through the Digital Scholarship Grant. The University Library also provided substantial assistance with the design, creation, proofreading, and professional technical help of this website. I would also like to thank Victor Lau and the other actors for their contributions in making the videos possible; my research assistants, Wong Man Hon, Tsang Hong Lam Hayley and Yu Hoi Wa Christina for their hard work.

This project would not have been possible without the contribution of individual participants, schools and organizations, who generously shared their experiences through surveys, interviews and focus group discussions.
