We are delighted to announce that Professor Eli Sorensen (Department of English) is awarded the Luce East Asia Fellowship and will be in residence at the National Humanities Center from Sept-Dec 2020. His research will be looking at the genre of Korean adoption autobiographies, examining key topics within the literature such as the origin of international adoption, looking for roots, human rights and future perspectives. The project aims to both contextualise and contribute to the ongoing contemporary debate on international adoption through the perspectives of the adoptees themselves.

This award is a first for CUHK and a fantastic opportunity for Prof. Sorensen. Hearty congratulations from the Faculty on his fellowship!
