The Department of Sociology, Hong Kong Shue Yan University is pleased to be offered the opportunity to
host the 17th Annual Conference of the Hong Kong Sociological Association.
The theme of the conference - Sociological Imagination in a Pluralist World - is an invitation to explore the
forces - politics, economics, social movements, policies and institutions - that drive the recognition and
affirmation of diversity within society, and the problems that derive from the coexistence of different interests, belief systems, and lifestyles.
We invite papers that will stimulate debate and discussion about the local and international issues related to the above. Hong Kong provides the ideal location for this conference - a city which has a long history of
openness and tolerance as well as respect for diversity. We look forward to welcoming you to the 17th Annual Conference ofthe Hong Kong Sociological Association December 5, 2015 at Hong Kong Shue Yan University.
