About Us

Hong Kong Literature Research Centre is a subordinate unit under the Department of Chinese Language and Literature, the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Since the 1980s, our department has been committed to the systematic collection of research materials on Hong Kong literature, publications of Hong Kong literature-related academic works and organization of various courses and activities. Afterwards, Hong Kong Literature has become the key project of our department. To fully utilize the resources, the Department of Chinese Language and Literature established our centre in 2001. Prof. Lo Wai-luen was our first director.

Our centre closely cooperates with the Chinese University of Hong Kong Library. With the donation of books and research materials from Prof. Lo, “Hong Kong Literature Collection”, online resource “Hong Kong Literature Database” and “Hong Kong Literature Archive” were launched. All the above efforts endeavor to enhance academic exchange and promotion of Hong Kong literature.
