James Luk is continuing to co-author an article on self-censorship in Hong Kong with Professor Michel Hockx. Luk has previously worked on literature reviews for academic articles on cultural policy in China. His work contributed to creating a database of censorship theory and methodology. Luk’s senior thesis, advised by Professor Hockx and written under the Department of Political Science, aims to examine why the law in Hong Kong incites self-censorship. Luk has also presented on academic panels at the University of Notre Dame and Purdue University Fort Wayne on the political climate in Hong Kong.

Luk is a Notre Dame International Security Center (NDISC) Undergraduate Fellow. During the summer of 2019, he was awarded the NDISC Internship Support grant for an internship in Jerusalem after spending a semester studying abroad there.
