Event Details

處身於資訊發達的時代,我們隨時接通互聯網,彷彿可以觸及全世界所有事情──知識、時事、文化、藝術、娛樂……然而,我們是否因此擁有更廣闊的眼界和見識?還是反而失去獨自思考的空間和沈澱的耐性,最終變得人云亦云?
面對這個複雜多元的世界,我們需要跨出自己本來的視角,想像和理解身邊的事物。遊走不同文化的李歐梵教授定義自己為「世界人」,嚮往多元文化,亦重視自己的多重身份──學者、文化人和業餘愛好者(近年主要為音樂及建築)。李教授站在跨文化、跨身份的位置,見解獨到且極富啟發性,他將親臨通識大講堂分享其「跨界視野」。


Being immersed in the Internet world, seemingly with a click or touch, we can acquire everything across the globe—knowledge, current issues, culture, arts, entertainment. Yet, are we having broadened horizons? Or, on the contrary, are we losing the mental space for contemplation? Acclaimed literary scholar, Prof. Lee Ou Fan claims himself an ‘cosmopolitan’ as he admires many different cultures. And he also emphasises the importance of his multiple roles—a scholar, a cultural man, and an amateur. Standing at the junction of different fields, Prof. Lee will share with us his inspiring insights about ‘crossing horizons’.
