This academic year, the University of Hong Kong (HKU) launched its Museum Studies Programme for postgraduate students. Considering the recently announced expansion of Hong Kong’s museum landscape and other global developments, the timing and location for this brand-new programme could not have been more opportune.


In his presentation, Joost Schokkenbroek (Professor of Museum Studies, HKU) will discuss the rationale behind the development of the Museum Studies Programme; its range of courses; and the possibilities for expanding relationships with students and other university departments.



Professor Joost C.A. Schokkenbroek joined HKU’s Faculty of Arts as Professor of Museum Studies in August 2023. He received his academic training at Leiden University and has a long career in academia and the museum sector. Since 1988 he has held various professorial, curatorial, and management positions at three universities and four museums on three continents, most recently as Director of the Hong Kong Maritime Museum. He is the (co)author of six books, edited monographs, and museum yearbooks, and has written dozens of peer-reviewed articles, often focusing on (maritime) history, museum matters, and the importance of artifacts as primary sources.
