Applicants are requested to conduct independent research on subjects related to Hong Kong’s textile industry from transregional and/or cross-cultural perspectives that can highlight new narratives. The aim will be to illustrate fresh perspectives on the textile industrial history of Hong Kong.

Applicants are required to submit a research proposal by 30 November, 2019, and the result of the grant award will be announced in March 2020. The successful applicant is expected to produce a research paper of 8,000-12,000 words (footnotes and captions included) on subjects related to Hong Kong’s textile industry.
