Professor Angel M. Y. Lin,Faculty of Education, The University of Hong Kong

In this presentation I shall outline what I think we can learn from the notion of ‘Asia as Method’ as proposed by Taiwan scholar and cultural theorist Chen Kuan-hsing. I shall focus on post-colonial and post-imperialist epistemologies (Chen, 2010; Lin, 2013) and discuss how our sense of cultural self and other is routinely re/produced in everyday discourses.
