China ports: History, Heritage and Development 
Establishing a cross-disciplinary, Sino-British dialogue Research workshop
Co-organized by the AHRC network China Ports and the Hong Kong Maritime Museum
Jeremy Taylor, University of Nottingham
Libby Chan, Senior Curator HKMM
This workshop is the first in the AHRC-funded network 'China ports: History, Heritage and Development', and will bring together UK and China-based scholars, museums professionals and representatives from private industry (e.g., developers, architects etc) who share an interest in conserving, managing, studying or regenerating the maritime past and port cities in China. 
As well as enabling scholars and experts to present specific examples of work in this general field, the workshop will also open up a number of broad themes for general discussion. It will raise questions such as: What is the fundamental significance of maritime and port heritage, and history, in the development of port cities in China today? What are the challenges (social, economic, political) faced by China in managing, conserving, exhibiting and studying maritime and port heritage, in the context of a rapidly expanding marine economy? What can the UK and China learn from each other's experience in this field?
