Class Notes from Alumni

Miss Josephine Song

Class of 2012

So glad to hear from geography department's messages, it reminds me immediately that it is truely a wonderful time spent in HKU from 2012 to 2013, and this memorable event influenced me a lot. I began to be more confident and more open-minded. Now I participated quite a few events held by HKU alumni in Shanghai, and it means a lot to me to stay connected with my department of geography! I hope I could be able to meet more alumni of my faculty in Shanghai in the future. Hope you all well in hku, love you and miss you, my dear classmates and brilliant professors.

At the end of August 2022, I am excited to transition to the Delaware River Port Authority (DRPA) as Manager for the Office of Grants Administration, while continuing to collaborate and partner with my current employer (Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission, DVRPC) on long-range planning and project investments. I hope to achieve additional federal funding to move the Glassboro-Camden Light Rail project forward, including other projects that will improve the agency's heavy rail line/stations and toll bridges.

Chinese History and Civilisation: an Urban Perspective

The emergence of a city marks the beginning of a civilisation. The city, especially the leading cities of a country, is also where the major features of a country are contained and where historical events play out. This book introduces readers to the progress of China's civilisation over more than 5000 years of history, through the rise and development of its cities.From the prehistoric Yangshuo and Longshan periods all the way to the People's Republic, this book outlines major events and developments to highlight the evolution of the Chinese civilisation. Using historical dynasties and urban dynamics as vertical dimensions, it examines major historical events, economic developments, territorial changes, and other developments over China's long history. It also discusses the uniqueness of China's history and compares its civilisations to Western experiences.
