We were very sorry to hear of the death on 5th January of the poet and scholar Leung Ping Kwan, who worked at Hong Kong University for ten years, first in the Department of English Studies and Comparative Literature and then in the Department of Comparative Literature, before moving to a Professorial Chair at Lingnan University. He remained close to the department and despite his illness participated in our celebration of the inaugural HKU Poetry Prize two years ago. We in the School of English express our sincere condolences to PK’s family. A tribute will appear in our Alumni Magazine later this month.
