The IHSS is dedicated to promoting local and international research activities that encompass the interests of different disciplines in the arts and social sciences. The activities and projects of IHSS are of three major kinds: first, projects that cut across the boundaries between the humanities and social sciences; second, theme conferences and seminars that facilitate the exchange and cross-fertilisation of ideas and insights from various disciplines; and, thirdly, academic undertakings that may, in time, contribute to the formulation of a major or minor interdisciplinary programme, consistent with the philosophy of liberal arts education.
The establishment of the IHSS helps further to enhance the status of Lingnan University as a liberal arts institution as well as encouraging synergy between research and teaching, and among the research units under its auspices.
