Cultural studies in a still colonial context : imagining Hong Kong between world and home

Research output: Journal PublicationsJournal Article (refereed)

Abstract

In the dynamic scene of contemporary Hongkong public culture, the fascinating representation of such emotional traces as anxiety, bewilderment and despair are embodied and processed in a machinery of highly sophisticated multi-media narrative constructs. The resultant spectacle——viewed through a patchwork of "moves" in language pragmatism (in Lyotard's sense of the just(i ce ) game)——is driven, in my analysis, by a public imaginary which, if mapped onto a network of "rules" governing the respective popular "games," would seem extremely useful for identifying the form and problematic of what might be called the cultural imaginary of Hong Kong.
