Harvard to hold symposium on Chinese literature
Adjust font size:

A symposium on modern Chinese literature is scheduled for Friday and Saturday at Harvard University.

The conference will bring together more than 30 renowned scholars from China, Singapore, Malaysia and North America to analyze new currents of the Chinese literary diaspora.

Titled Globalizing Modern Chinese Literature: Sinophone and Diasporic Writings, the symposium will focus on the emerging sites rather than established centers of Chinese-language literature.

In particular, it will address the emerging field of Sinophone literary studies and examine the ways in which diaspora, trans-nationalism and the question of dialects and national languages are transforming the concept of modern Chinese literature.

The new perspective reflects the impact of global mobility, multilingualism and translations in shaping the current and future course of modern Chinese literature.

The two-day meeting is jointly sponsored by Harvard University and Yale University.
