簡歷

鍾寶賢教授的研究領域為社會經濟史,她結合古今文獻、圖像檔案、廟宇遺跡和口述歷史,追溯多個商旅族群(如穆斯林與猶太商人;東南亞華僑、華南水上社群等)在亞洲不同時空地域的流徙故事,從歷史角呈現人群、商品、宗教活動與思想的流轉,並展示這些流徏脈絡如何結連起中國沿海、東南亞、中東地區多個貿易樞紐、殖民地要塞和港口城市。在同儕和讀者眼中,她是位說故事的高手,擅於從古物和文獻中,發掘出鮮明有趣的角度,訴説不同商旅的歷險故事,呈現不同場境的人物互動、經濟榮枯和歷史變遷。

 

鍾教授畢業於中文大學歷史系,並在牛津大學取得博士學位,曾於香港演藝學院任教。她現為香港浸會大學近代史研究中心主任,參與由教資會支持的學術研究計劃外,也帶領多項由商界、公營機構、博物館支持的委約研究項目。

 

在2018年,鍾教授及其歷史系研究團隊獲香港特別行政區政府發展局保育歷史建築基金撥款港幣$200萬元,支持其「『水上香港』與『陸上香港』相遇之處:鴨脷洲-香港仔-南丫島區歷史建築群保育方案研究」研究計劃。該計劃運用海上視角重新審視香港仔及鄰近地區的歷史,透過文物建築群如廟宇教會等著手,呈現陸上人、水上人社群的文化特色,並追溯他們落地生根的故事。

 

在2020年,鍾教授及其團隊獲康樂及文化事務署非物質文化遺產辦事處撥出港幣139萬元經費,進行「中秋節—薄扶林舞火龍」研究計劃。團隊會以歷史人類學角度,追溯薄扶林村族群歷史,重塑逾百年歷史的舞火龍傳統和其文化內涵。
