The Centre for Liberal Arts and Social Sciences (CLASS)

The Centre for Liberal Arts and Social Sciences (CLASS) is the trans-disciplinary research centre of the College of Humanities, Arts, & Social Sciences. 

Established in 2006, it brings together researchers from various fields – including English, Chinese, Economics, Sociology, Psychology, Linguistics, Communications, and Art, Design & Media – so as to open new registers of thinking within their respective discourses through seminars, lectures, workshops, conferences, exhibitions and other platforms. 

CLASS aims to facilitate interactions between local and international scholars who are attempting to rethink the boundaries of their disciplines.
