Research on Newspaper Supplements for Children in Hong Kong during the Civil War
This is a research on ‘Children’s Weekly and Students’ Weekly in “Wah Kiu Yat Pao” and ‘Children’s Wonderland’ and ‘Students’ Forum’ in “Singtao Daily.” Through detailed textual analysis, we look into the founding principles and editorial directions of these supplements, and examine their educational and literary contents. We aim to outline the development history and characteristics of early children’s supplements, children’s literature as well as education, from the following perspectives: post-war political situation in Hong Kong; the papers’ principles and business strategies; editorial points of view and directions; and government policies.
