Although ideas about multileveled citizenship have been developed as abstract concepts in the literature and in policy discussions, very little is known about the views of university students. Recent studies in citizenship education and higher education have identified the need to conduct updated research with college students, because they are well positioned to develop and practice a new kind of citizenship that is featured by having shifting and multiple identities in a globalized world. There have been related studies in the North American and European contexts, but there has not been much research on the topic in Asia.
This seminar shares findings from two on-going research projects that seek to understand the changing university-citizenship relationships in the comparative contexts of Hong Kong and Beijing. Drawn upon empirical data collected from questionnaire and interview surveys, this seminar details (1) how university students view their citizenship within local, national, and global contexts, and (2) in what ways social transitions and university education in Hong Kong / Beijing contribute to students' perceptions of citizenship, political awareness, and their underlying values. Audiences are welcome to share information on current developments in this area in Canada, American and European contexts.
