Prof. LAU Chi-pang

香港的街道命名經歷過多個階段,採取過不同的方式和機制,形成今日百花齊放的局面。香港開埠早期的街道名稱多以人名命名,而近年則普遍以地區特徵加上吉祥字詞組成,各具特色。在這些街道名稱的背後,往往都有一些值得探索的歷史故事。劉智鵬博士於講座中講解一些香港街道名稱的背景由來,讓大家從另一個角度去認識本地歷史。

Winter Birches At York Redoubt, Irene Oore 2018 Dalhousie University

Winter Birches At York Redoubt, Irene Oore

The Goose

This painting of Winter Birches at York Redoubt in Halifax, Nova Scotia reflects the grandeur and beauty of the historic site on which it sits and evacuates the fortification from it. York Redoubt, now a National Historic Park, was constructed in 1793 (just as war broke out between Britain and France) on a bluff at the narrowest point on the outer harbour. It overlooks the entrance to Halifax Harbour at Ferguson's Cove, Nova Scotia, Canada.

The New Minnesota, Richard C. Crepeau 2018 University of Central Florida

The New Minnesota, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

It is the “Bold North.”

The “Frozen Tundra” has been jettisoned and the “Bold North” is the new brand for Minnesota. I am assuming that this is the winter label only, and that the “Land of 10,000 Lakes” still reigns over that small window of time called summer, or if you prefer, August.


The Uselessness Of Art: Critique And Contradiction In The Picture Of Dorian Gray, Chelsea E. Kidd 2018 Florida Southern College

The Uselessness Of Art: Critique And Contradiction In The Picture Of Dorian Gray, Chelsea E. Kidd

Papers & Publications: Interdisciplinary Journal of Undergraduate Research

In the preface of The Picture of Dorian Gray (1890), Oscar Wilde argues that “all art is quite useless” and the only thing art is good for is its beauty. The Picture of Dorian Gray, however, is a work of literary art that is the opposite of useless; it serves as a critique of the hypocrisy of Victorian society. Strict legislative and cultural moral reforms at the time of the novel’s publication caused upper class Victorians to separate their private and public lives so that they could outwardly reflect society’s image of moral behavior while they really acted ...

Hippie Communes Of The West Coast: A Study Of Gender Roles And The Evolution Of The Counterculture's Definition Of Freedom, Lisa A. Scott

Papers & Publications: Interdisciplinary Journal of Undergraduate Research

Following the deterioration of conditions in the Haight-Ashbury in 1968, hippies moved to communes throughout the west coast, specifically in the nearby Santa Cruz Mountains above San Francisco in California. Beginning as a utopian vision, many of the traditions and problems that commune residents sought to escape manifested again in communal life, including the division of races, repression of women, and intolerance of homosexuals. Additionally, they could not escape the financial realities of the world they lived in, and communes were plagued with health issues and unscrupulous individuals. Eventually, women of the communes, forced to provide income for their families ...
