“Recomposing the Self” 
Zoom 杰出讲者系列

In times of rapid changes both domestically and globally, how can young people foster their creativity and cultivate their critical thinking to navigate the changing environment around them? The more the world is changing, the more we need to consider how to refashion our self in order to think about our relationship with society, to adapt to changes, and to prepare how to contribute to it.  
 
In many ways, around the world today the increasing interests of youth on issues of climate change, impact of social media, social inequality, multiculturalism and diversity, and so on, are an indication of their yearning to “recompose” their sense of identity and selfhood, so that they may reactivate their community connections and become better prepared to meet the challenges of their generation.  

Our zoom series aims to use a storytelling approach to stimulate young people to recognize the need (and the art) of flexibly thinking about ourselves and our relation to a society with major social transformations.  
 
We have invited 5 distinctive individuals who, in their own unique ways, learn how to refashion themselves because they recognize that somehow they are different and that they are not satisfied with the common ways of being. Striving with their own sense of creativity, they have each struck a new sense of well-being and self value, and used their examples to contribute to the public good.

Spinning Outwards to a Larger We - 
Benjamin Koen x Lian-Hee Wee: A Dialogue

Benjamin Koen: Ben’s life has always been connected to the power of music in human creativity, imagination, transformation, healing, and wellbeing. Ben grew up in a highly diverse community where he had opportunities to share his music for healing and wellbeing with people from numerous backgrounds and cultures. Dr. Koen’s research and applied practice in music, meditation, healing, and wellbeing illumines the elusive process of how music heals.  He is widely published, including two benchmark books with Oxford University Press: The Oxford Handbook of Medical Ethnomusicology, and Beyond the Roof of the World: Music, Prayer, and Healing in the Pamir Mountains.

 

Lian-Hee Wee: Like many others, Lian-Hee’s identity may be described along different parameters. Culturally, he is a hybrid of Southeast Asia, various southern elements of Chinese, some flavours of American, and echoes of a British colonial past. Linguistically, he has a few first languages including Chiuchow and Hainanese, the latter he had lost and the former he speaks only with his parents, siblings and cousins, and necessarily only about mundane homely stuff. Lian-Hee is native in Singapore English across different social registers, Mandarin, and near native in Cantonese and Hong Kong English. His friends have kindly given him such wonderful appellations as guqin player/maker, flutist, poet, painter, animal-lover, activist, and scientist. However, friends are those who acknowledge one’s delusions. Professionally, he is a theoretical phonologist and a professor at the Department of English, Hong Kong Baptist University.
