Since World War Two the public spaces in which war memorials were erected, sometimes by colonial authorities, have been caught up in the rapid urban development and major political changes which have taken place in mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Consequently, the spatial settings and significance of these monuments have changed radically. Come and listen to Lu Pan, Assistant Professor, Department of Chinese Culture at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, explore the processes through which these new spatial contexts and meanings developed.
