Description

A 45 minute talk given by Jason Wordie a local Historian and Writer, followed by a three course dinner with house wine, beer and soft drinks.

Triads- A Historical Overview

A thrilling, gory staple of the local film industry, few aspects of modern Hong Kong life are as heavily overlaid with myth and urban legend as the Tin Dei Hui 'Heaven and Earth Societies' – better known as the Triads. In this lecture we will explore exactly what a Triad is in contemporary Chinese society – and what it is not – and how the Triad Societies evolved in China from Ming loyalists in the early Manchu period onwards towards the Republican era and the present day. Illustrated detail will be given of Triad ritual and mythology, and some discussion will be made of their pervasive role in contemporary local life.

Jason is a well established local writer who conducts historical walks specifically for Hong Kong residents. He regularly lectures to clubs, associations and leading corporations on aspects of Hong Kong history, culture and society. He has written several books about Hong Kong and Macao and is a weekly contributor to the South China Morning Post.

There is a shuttle bus available from Hong Kong Station to Le Meridien Cyberport. Please call Mozaic for details tel: 3955-2766
