Public Transit as a Tourist Attraction: Hong Kong

Written as my final paper for HIST 3076 (History of Tourism), a history class I took on exchange at the University of Hong Kong in fall 2018, this paper also ended up counting as my 395 research paper for my history double major at Northwestern. This is my favourite academic paper, so I put it on my website. For more context, see this tweet thread.
