Maria is Associate Director of the Centre of Urban History, Culture and Media at CUHK’s Institute of Future Cities, as well as an Adjunct Associate Professor at the Department of Anthropology. Her expertise is in ethnic relations and the sociocultural significance of human movement. Safe to say that Maria, born and bred in Hong Kong, was matched up with the study of anthropology by her times.
Quite a few archaeology projects are underway in Hong Kong. We may not be taking part directly, but technology has enabled us to virtually experience the fun and contribute to heritage protection. Developed by American space archaeologist and Egyptologist Sarah Parack, the GlobalXplorer° project is an option. Just sit comfortably at home, go through satellite photos, and help pin down historical sites which have potentially been raided!
