Submitted by Whitney Miller on

We are delighted to announce that Christina Yuen Zi Chung has been awarded the College of Arts and Sciences Dean’s Medal for 2023-24. This prestigious honor is bestowed annually to outstanding undergraduate and graduate students in each division of the college, recognizing their exceptional academic accomplishments and contributions.

As Sasha Su-Ling Welland, chair of Chung’s dissertation committee, highlighted, "Christina's exceptional scholarship spans transnational and decolonial feminist thought, Sinophone studies, and art history, and she is pioneering the emerging field of Hong Kong Studies while reshaping curatorial practice." Chung’s dissertation, “At the Seams of the World: Gender and Decoloniality in Hong Kong Contemporary Art,” and her co-edited volume, Reorienting Hong Kong’s Resistance: Leftism, Decoloniality, and Internationalism, exemplify the profound impact of her work.

On Wednesday, Chung successfully defended her dissertation and will graduate at the end of the Spring quarter. We celebrate her recent successes and eagerly anticipate her future contributions to the field.
