Faith Organisations and Urban Transformations

Property, history, and community

  • Funding: Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) Hong Kong Dissertation Scholarship
  • Starting Year: 2015

Focusing on the controversial issue of church redevelopment, I unpack the sacred and secular relations between religious organisations and urban process through the lens of property.

In the Department of Geography at Hong Kong Baptist University, my undergraduate honours project, entitled ‘Urban (Re)development, Religious Organisations, and Urban Communities: A Spatial Story of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church, Wan Chai’, was completed in 2016.

Results of this project are published in Geoforum (2020) and Hong Kong Journal of Catholic Studies (2017).
