Linguistics Field Trip to Ethiopia

A group of nineteen HKU students went on a field trip to Ethiopia in June 2016. The group was led by Dr. Kofi Yakpo (Linguistics) and Dr. Facil Tesfaye (African Studies). HKU students worked on joint research projects with Ethiopian students and visited four Ethiopian universities (Addis Abeba, Axum, Gondar and Bahr Dar). The group also made a tour of ancient cities and archeological sites (Axum, Gondar and Lalibella), delving into to the long and complex history of the African continent. The impressions and experiences are contained in a website and a video clip produced by HKU student Patricia Kwok in collaboration with participating students.
