CUS3219 2nd Semester 2019-20, Studies in the time of Coronavirus 嶺南大學同學修業於瘟疫蔓延時
This video recorded how Lingnan University students studied in the time of Coronavirus in 2020.
From January to May 2020, during the time of the Coronavirus, the students taking the course CUS3219 Culture and Textual Politics offered by the Cultural Studies programme, Lingnan University, did more than attending real-time online classes, listening to lectures, reading novels and course materials, and preparing their exams. They had engaged in innovative projects supported by the instructors as part of their course assignments: some researched on medicinal herbs and local recipes for boosting the immune system, some took weekly classes on Eight Silken Movements and Shaolin Boxing from their homes, some gave details on DIY mask-making for the benefit of people in countries without masks, some documented daily life in Hong Kong with their cameras, and some did on-campus farming, tending to the fruits and blossoms among the hundred varieties of plants at the Lingnan Garden. These activities contributed to their reflections on individual aspirations and anxieties, and diverse social responses to the crisis.
The course was taught by Professor Lau Kin Chi, assisted by Ms Au Yeung Lai Seung, Dr Yan Xiaohui, Ms Jin Peiyun, and Mr Lee Kiu Chi. Lingnan Gardeners was partner in supporting the service learning component. The video was edited by Ms Au Yeung Lai Seung, and produced by Lingnan Gardeners, May 2020.
