The Department of Linguistics and Modern Language Studies, and the Centre for Research on Linguistics and Language Studies at The Education University of Hong Kong organized the School of Cantonese Studies from 27 to 31 May 2019.

The aims of the School are (a) to introduce recent developments and knowledge on different domains in Cantonese Studies to the participants; (b) to introduce systematic and rigorous methodologies for conducting research on Cantonese; (c) to provide a venue for scholarly exchange and interaction between scholars and participants of different backgrounds who are interested in Cantonese Studies.

The five-day event covered nine lectures delivered by twelve scholars specializing in Cantonese studies. There were 60 participants coming from different parts of the world.

The School of 2021 carries the theme "Cantonese Studies in the Digital Age". We are now living in the Information Age with a lot of data surrounding us. We need to apply appropriate methods to collect, process, interpret, and represent these data. Digital technologies play a significant role in this regard. In this two-day event, speakers of the School will introduce some up-to-date Cantonese studies involving digital technologies, such as corpus-based research, online tools and resources for Cantonese studies, and digital processing of Cantonese corpus data.
