Identity politics in the everyday lives of girls is of continual global concern to gender studies. I argue that neither educational factors nor those pertaining to mass media can stand alone in accounting for what girlhood means in Hong Kong where the study of what it means to be a girl has not yet attracted much attention from academic scholars. Because of the promotion of a sexually repressive framework in the educational sector, the concept of girlhood remains confined by an already established notion of femininity. I argue that it is hence vital for us to use texts of popular culture in education to allow for a more appropriate concept of girlhood in contemporary Hong Kong given that this concept affects the ways in which girls identify themselves.

Transnational higher education is the term that is most commonly used to describe programmes that allow students to obtain a degree from an overseas university in their local context. Such programmes are often marketed on their similarity with those offered at home by the overseas university. Perhaps as a consequence, the related literature focuses on 'problems' that are encountered in the 'other' environment, particularly when academic staff travel to the host country to deliver the teaching. Transnational programmes, however, offer rich opportunities for developing cultural capability in students and academics through a sensitively internationalised curriculum. This article uses an autoethnographic approach to discuss teaching and learning in transnational programmes that are delivered in a postcolonial context (Hong Kong) by a university that is in the former colonising country (U.K.). Its aim is to illustrate how, by embracing the complexities, transnational higher education programmes can enrich learning and teaching in both the host and the home context.
