Research output: Other PublicationsSpecial issue (Editor)


Contributors to this special issue evaluate the influence of Western critical theory on the development of Chinese literary studies since the mid-twentieth century. By examining the development of hermeneutic systems such as gender studies, semiotics, cultural studies, and space theory, the authors discuss the possibility of modern critical discourse intervening in the study of ancient Chinese literature and culture.
