Dr Carmen K M Tong
  • Carmen’s research expertise in schooling and student culture was inspired from her extensive teaching experiences in different higher education institutions in Hong Kong. Her ethnographic studies explore Hong Kong students’ sexual identities, life visions, and the dynamics of adaptation tactics in the competitive schooling environment.

    Carmen is currently intrigued by the rapidly growing field of human-animal studies and their potential contribution to sociological inquiries.
