A great thanks to the Hanfu groups in Hong Kong, including hanfu.hk and PropLuxurians for their recommendation to  host this Cantonese talk series at HK Reader, a Mong Kok bookshop specializing in sociology, anthropology, and political science topics. We had an excellent turnout and the small bookshop was filled up and downstage with listeners, where we shared insights and opinions from 8PM to 10PM on the causes of the hanfu movement, ethnic identity, and the importance of developing a taxonomy and vocabulary of describing things. We hope to see you all, as well as new friends, in our next lecture, to be held on November 4 (two weeks from now), at HK Reader bookshop in Mong Kok, from 8PM to 10PM (HKT)!

The original Chinese notice is as follows: 漢服/運動系列講座「快樂鬥爭」模式、透過「正能量」文藝與耍樂方式,跟傳統示威方式別樹一格,香港人從保衛菜園村運動中記憶猶新。同樣,中國大陸的「80、90後」早已在互聯網策劃以及著手以穿著漢民族傳統衣裝的方式向中國的民族及文化政策和平異議。
奈何,他們卻遇媒體與大眾冷嘲熱諷為「做戲穿越」,甚至幾乎年年都遭到群體暴力逼害。但當華人留學生在他邦穿上華夏衣冠時,卻獲當地人熱烈歡迎及鼓勵。在一連串似乎無甚麼政治急切性的事件中,蘊藏著多少玄機?香港人對此事無動於衷,但是為甚麼本土化思想卻一定要參考此事呢?
