The Modern History Research Centre (MHRC) was established in January 2002. Profiting from the role of Hong Kong as an intellectual bridge between China and the West, many of its activities have been centered on cross-cultural encounters especially in nineteenth- and twentieth-century history. The Centre has been building upon research strengths of the Department of History at HKBU such as intellectual and cultural history, the history of Christianity, Hong Kong history, and Sino-foreign relations. While maintaining these areas of interest, the Centre is currently striking out in new directions such as urban history, transportation history, and the history of knowledge and science. In 2016 the Centre will launch the MHRC Colloquia as a new framework for bringing together local and overseas scholars around a series of more specialised questions.
