Prize for geography graduate student in UCL poster competition

Hang Kei Ho has won a £100 cash prize as runner up in the UCL Graduate School Poster Competition.  His poster is entitled 'Hong Kong 1967, 1997 and 2047: Exploring its Identity Crisis through Popular Culture' and the poster illustrates the hybrid culture of Hong Kong, which has resulted from its status as a former British colony. This has created a problematic identity crisis for the Hong Kong Chinese. Hang Kei Ho's research looks at Hong Kong’s identity before and after the 1997 handover through cinema, popular literature, urban consumption, and how it presents its citizens with ideas of alternative futures for the city.
