An Education Studies students at Durham University. My research is based on the how digital literacies can affect the social wellbeing of the older generations.

Laidlaw Undergraduate Research Scholar, Durham University

Anthropology and Sociology Undergraduate; from Bristol, UK. I am completing a research project on narrative transmission and reproduction, looking at how oral accounts of geological events are passed down accurately over generations. By understanding how narratives are constructed I am keen to explore interdisciplinary approaches, particularly between Anthropology, Linguistics, Computer-Human Interaction, and Cognition. Other interests include literature, art and photography, architecture, astronomy, and outdoor pursuits.

Hullo! My main interest these days is Chinese tea culture and, with this research, I am wanting to explore the process of an active tradition invetion. Chinese tea ceremony as a singular entity does not exist and has never existed (at least not in the way it does, say, in Japan). Nonetheless, there is a strong notion for creating a uniquely Chinese approach to tea, an authentic Chinese tea ceremony. By way of looking into the ways how a historically non-existent tea tradition is being invented and tailored to the needs of current-day China, I hope to gain insight into current social, cultural, and political trends, which shape China’s contemporary and future profile. I will be analysing Chinese literary products, tea-related artefacts, religious & philosophical oeuvres, records of drinking fashions, etc., in order to investigate in what ways the Chinese government drives and supports a large-scale process of social engineering and global self-branding with the vehicle of tea.

Hi, I am an undergraduate student from the University of Hong Kong. As an emerging medical engineer, I focus my studies and researches on tissue engineering and medical imaging. I believe both of them can be of great help in the future and have the most direct potential in clinical operations. Personality-wise, I love teamwork, cooperation, and challenges. As told by many cautionary tales, we can only avoid making mistakes if we take advice and change our opinions based on that. I'd love to be the person to communicate, share and build wholeheartedly.

The paperless school aims to use a digital means in place of class marks publication and other activities currently using papers in the campus for creating beautiful, clean college classrooms, offices, and auditorium, and also for environment conservation by reducing trees cut every year for manufacturing papers which is one the fact of global warming.
